Easy/Moderate: We will be traveling to the Cassia Division of the Sawtooth National Forest, locally known as the South Hills, to observe the Cassia Crossbill. The travel time from Hagerman is approximately one hour and 15 minutes. The Cassia Crossbill is endemic to southern Idaho and found nowhere else in the world. Although not guaranteed, we are very likely to observe Crossbills on this tour. We will be birding in Lodgepole Pine forests at elevations above 7000 feet, however the walking will be only short distances on mostly flat surfaces. Bring binoculars and water, and plenty of warm clothing. After we are done observing crossbills we will drop down to lower elevation and look for Greater Sage Grouse. This is an excursion field trip into the South Hills of Idaho.
