Wyoming State Bird Checklist

small state map showing location


INTRODUCTION

The Wyoming Bird Checklist is part of Wyoming's Wildlife - Worth the Watching program designed to enhance the users' opportunity to view and understand Wyoming's wildlife and wildlands. This checklist contains 394 species which have been known to occur in the state of Wyoming. Its purpose is to help the user become more aware of birds occurring in the state and provide an organized method for recording observations. Common bird names are used and are listed in American Ornithological Union (AOU) format. Because names are constantly being changed, this checklist may not match your field guide or other checklists. Distribution information for six regions of Wyoming is provided, with a (*) designating regions where a species is found. Seasonal status, abundance, and habitat preference are also listed with corresponding keys located at the beginning of the checklist.

Birds with a seasonal status of "R" (yearlong resident) or "S" (summer resident) can be assumed to breed in at least part of Wyoming although this is not always the case. Some birds classed as "R" or "S" do not breed in Wyoming. Birds with a seasonal status of "M" (migratory), "W" (winter resident), or "A" (accidental) generally do not breed in Wyoming although a very limited number of these have been documented breeding in the state.

Successful use of the checklist will require utilizing a field guide containing color photos or illustrations. A list of available field guides is located at the end of this introduction. Binoculars and/or a spotting scope will be an essential asset and you may want to consider carrying a camera. Bird watching can be done in conjunction with other activities or by planning special outings. Field trips should be scheduled for early morning or evening hours when birds are most active. Moving slowly and quietly and staying concealed can greatly improve your opportunities to view birds.

Most people can watch birds at their homes. Landscaping and providing a bird feeder and water will create viewing opportunities at your window (Information on attracting wildlife to your yard is available at your local Wyoming Game and Fish office). Wyoming Game and Fish management areas, national forests, rural areas, and local parks are convenient areas for short trips. Areas which contain riparian habitat usually support a wider variety of birds. Wildlife refuges and national parks are excellent places for bird observation. These areas usually provide tours, lectures, and other information on local wildlife.

Membership in the Audubon Society or a local birding club is a great way to learn and meet people with the same interests. These organizations conduct meetings, lectures, and field trips, and many publish journals or newsletters. Some organizations you may be interested in joining include:
