Birds of Bryce

175 different species of birds have been documented to frequent Bryce Canyon National Park. Some are just passing through. Others stay for an entire season. Fewer still make this their year-round home, but those that do are charming and charismatic.
Check out a species checklist for the park or recent eBird sightings within the park. Planning a visit in December? Consider joining us for our annual Christmas Bird Count!
