Birds

Blue grouse
Sooty grouse are commonly spotted in mountain meadows.

Do Not Feed Birds in the Park! All wildlife in national parks are protected by federal law. According to the Code of Federal Regulations, 36 CFR § 2.2, the feeding, touching, teasing, calling, frightening or intentional disturbing of wildlife nesting, breeding or other activities is prohibited. Using apps to call out birds within the park is considered harrassment, especially if the bird is federally listed as threatened or endangered.



A peregrine falcon swoops down on a shorebird running along the beach. A long, cheerful, warble reveals a tiny winter wren singing hidden among the forest understory. Deep, hooting calls of a sooty grouse resonate across a mountain meadow. These are just a few of the many birds -- about 300 species in all -- that add color and song to the diverse habitats found in Olympic National Park.
