Mammal Checklists of the United States

Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge

Plush, Oregon


All mammals listed are considered resident species with the exception of bats which migrate on a seasonal basis much like some of the birds. Other mammal populations fluctuate on a cyclical basis due to hibernation or seasonal movements between summer and winter ranges. Hart Mountain is a highly desired summer range for antelope to raise their young. They arrive here in the spring after spending the winter months on the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge, 40 miles to the south.
