Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of Prey

National Conservation Area - Idaho

The Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area (NCA) has one of the densest populations of nesting raptors. More than 700 pairs of raptors, representing 15 different species, nest on the high canyon walls. Nine additional raptor species use the Snake River area as seasonal hunting grounds during migrations or as wintering areas. Birds of Prey NCA is particularly important for prairie falcons, North America's only indigenous falcon. The area is home to a significant portion of the species' known population. Visitors to the Snake River area can explore the house-size boulders, box canyons, and other evidence left behind by the tremendous flood about 14,000 years ago. At Swan Falls (now Swan Falls Dam), peak discharge of the flood was an astounding 33 million cubic feet/second.
