 Teton National Park encompasses a range of habitats, from alpine meadows to sagebrush flats, from lodgepole pine forests to mountain streams. Birds use habitats that meet their needs for food, water, shelter and nest sites. Some birds frequent only one habitat Most of the birds found in the park and parkway are migratory, spending only 3-6 months here each year. Migratory birds are protected while they nest in national parks, but may lose safe nesting sites on other lands due to human activities. Migratory birds also face numerous perils on their long journeys to and from wintering grounds.

Birds that migrate to the tropics may lose their winter range due to deforestation. while others occupy a variety of habitats.such as Lodgepole pine that grows in dense forests covering much of the valley and the lower slopes of the mountains. Aspens occur chiefly in pure stands, often on hillsides. Many of the aspen stands in the park and parkway have rotting trunks that attract numerous woodpeckers Sagebrush covers most of the valley called Jackson Hole.

Despite the hot dry conditions existing where sagebrush grows, some species flourish. Above 10,000 feet, severe conditions limit vegetation to low-growing forms. Birds that nest above the tree line migrate south or to lower elevations for winter . Rivers, creeks, lakes and ponds provide habitats where waterfowl nest.
