The wide variety of habitats found in the park allows for an abundance of bird species. One hundred and ninety species have been confirmed sighted in the area, and six others have unconfirmed sightings. The once endangered Peregrine falcon nests along the Tuxedni Bay coastline. The foothill/lakes region to the west of the Chigmit Range, and the Chulitna Flats adjacent to Lake Clark are important feeding and nesting grounds which host a varied array of migratory and native birds. Among the types of birds a visitor might see are waterfowl, shorebirds, raptors, falcons, owls, songbirds, grouse, and ptarmigan. For more information on Lake Clark's birds, visit our bird page.
