In the northwest corner of the state, Yellowstone National Park encompasses 2.2 million acres of forest, grassland, and wetlands. Checking varied habitats at differing elevations will turn up typical species such as the song sparrow, Cinnamon Teal; Broad-tailed Hummingbird; Red-naped Sapsucker; Olive-sided, Hammond’s, and Dusky Flycatchers.

As always, there are certain montane birds it takes a bit of luck to see, such as Northern Goshawk, Blue Grouse, Williamson’s Sapsucker, Pine Grosbeak, and Red Crossbill. Some of the park’s best birding can be found by driving from West Thumb, on Yellowstone Lake, east and north to Tower and west to Mammoth Hot Springs. As you skirt Yellowstone Lake to Fishing Bridge and a bit beyond, stop where you can to scan for double-crested Cormorant, Trumpeter Swan, Barrow’s Goldeneye, California Gull, and other waterbirds, as well as Osprey and Bald Eagle.

Heading north along the Yellowstone River, you’ll find White-throated Swift flying through canyons; American Dipper flits from rock to rock along rapids; and with luck you might see Harlequin Duck. Where roads cross meadows, stop to check surrounding trees—and hope to find a huge Great Gray Owl looking back at you. In sagebrush areas, look for Sage Thrasher and Brewer’s Sparrow. Three-toed and Black-backed Woodpeckers frequent burned woodland, and the Yellowstone fires of 1988 provided vast areas of such habitat. Ask park naturalists about any recent sightings and about the chances of seeing these often elusive species.
