  • All tours depart from Burns High School. 

  • Arrive early and check in at Bird Central (located in the gymnasium at Burns High School) – we will get you connected with your tour guide, group and vehicle.

  • Tours depart at the scheduled time.

  • Transportation is provided – no caravanning or driving your own vehicles (except for the llama tours and the overnight Sage-Grouse excursion that begins in Frenchglen).

  • Tour vehicles are a mix of 12 and 15 passenger vans, and 8 - 13 passenger commercial transit vehicles (think "People Movers" or inner city-type busing).

  • Be prepared with your own amenities. Most tours travel to remote areas, and weather and road conditions could change routes of travel and the duration of some of tours. 

  • Bring snacks, lunch and water, and dress for changing weather conditions - “fowl” weather gear and sturdy shoes or boots are advised. 

  • There may be long stretches between restroom stops and the birds will only be as visible as they choose!
