Alaska Department of Fish and Game


Birds

Species information is provided in one of two formats: a PDF, or a user-friendly species profile with tabbed webpages designed to include photos, sounds, sign, range maps, comments on management and research, and much more. Over time, the department plans to convert content from all PDF sources into species profiles.

Have fun learning about Alaska’s wildlife and their habitats.
