Hagerman Valley shelters plentiful bird populations.
The Hagerman region is a bird-watchers paradise with tens of thousands of ducks moving into the Snake River and adjacent ponds during the winter and spring, bald eagles that winter in the region, and song birds that move through as migrants and summer residents.
In the winter, the river doesn’t get much use and the waterfalls freeze, but different seasons bring new wonders. What most travelers aren’t aware of, is the area becoming a winter home to the migrating eagles. Read more about our famous Eagle Tree in Hagerman.
