tips from an Idaho birder please!
I will be in Twin Falls 8th to 12th September and would value some tips from a local birder!
I want to see Calliope hummingbird but have been told it is unlikely
is there anywhere that may still have any present?
Also , I want to see Varied Thrush ; can someone recommend somewhere to go for this stunning bird?
I will have one free day to explore the Twin Falls area ; I enjoy woodland birds and would appreciate tips on any hotspots

I'm not sure this is the best spot to get replies. I'm in Nampa, ID which is about 2 hours from Twin Falls.
Check out the Idaho Birding Trail:
If you are on facebook join Idaho Birding: https://www.facebook.com/groups/509989899045635
Lots of super nice people that will give you advice as to where to go.
If you don't use ebird - I highly suggest it. lots of useful information. You can search for Calliopes or whatever else you might be looking for. http://ebird.org/content/ebird/
Also a Yahoo group: Idaho Birders Linked electronically (IBLE)
I think your best bets are the facebook page and IBLE. I don't bird regularly in the Twin Falls area so I don't know best where to send you.
Hope you have a great trip!

Not an Idaho birder,but a former Oregon one!..I saw Varied thrush when i lived in Portland and it is an amazing bird.
The Idaho Birding trail is a good site,full with information.For what I am seeing here,the best chances to see the Varied thrush are in the North part of the state,with a few sites in the southwest portion,always West of Twin Falls..Those sites along the Snake river looking so exciting!!!!!!
good luck and enjoy the trip
