Birding in Alaska

Birding in Alaska

Resources to help you search for birds in the Great Land.

From temperate rainforest to Arctic tundra wetlands, Alaska is home to a wide range of bird species, including some you can't see anywhere else in North America.

Birding hotlines and email groups are great ways to find out what birds people are seeing where. If you're trying to plan a trip or just want to find good birding spots, Audubon Alaska offers birding maps for Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Kodiak. Find out more about birding maps here.
