Alaska Birding Checklists

Check out the three Anchorage-area checklists Audubon Alaska offers.

Anchorage Area and Palmer Checklists
Audubon Alaska created three checklists, in partnership with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game and, for the Anchorage lists, Anchorage Audubon. The lists show detailed information about when common bird species are present throughout the year.

Below are PDF files. If you would like a free printed checklist (on heavy paper), email or call us at 907-276-7034.
