Bald Eagles migrate early and sometimes find a lot of snow.  A few ducks have been wintering in Sidley lake in the open water provided by the aerator that Pat Stice has been operating.  Come and add to the list!

Traditional experienced birders historically have traveled winter routes yielding excellent viewing variety such as Mary Anne Creek Road, Highland Sno-park, Myers Creek area and Bolster Road.  The local birders travel a few more roads including Lost Lake Road, Davies Road, Fletcher Hill Road, Dry Gulch Road, Molson Road and on to Nine Mile Road plus others.  Eden Valley Guest Ranch is the perfect place to stay for a Highland birding adventure.

If you wish to bring a group, see our catering options under groups and meetings.

Eden Valley now keeps a local bird sighting notebook on the Reference Table in the Lodge created with data from guests willing to share information about their adventures.  We keep lists of text, pictures, comments, suggestions and birding book recommendations.

A quick web search will show birding history data back to the late 1940's for the Okanogan Highlands.
