Lassen Volcanic National Park provides habitat for approximately 216 species of birds in which 96 have been known to breed in the park. Most of the species that occur in the park are neotropical migrants. These birds use the park in summer to breed and forage and then fly to Central and South America to spend the winter.

Researchers have been studying landbirds at Lassen Volcanic National Park since 2008. Landbirds (tree-dwelling birds, perching birds or songbirds, raptors, and ground-feeding birds) are frequently sighted in the park. Because they spend most of their lives on the ground or in trees, they are sensitive to habitat change. Studying them helps researchers track conditions of their habitats.
