Bird Watching


Owl

 

California has some of the most varied wildlife habitat on earth - from arid southern desert to snow-capped Sierra Nevada to Pacific seacoast. This diversity is well-represented on the public lands in California administered by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.

Among other wildlife, a wide variety of birds find their way to these public lands, either making their homes here or just migrating through. Some pockets of BLM-California land have become valuable links in bird migration routes, as more and more open land is covered by new development. A number of cooperating partners work with the BLM to help preserve this valuable habitat.

One result: bird watching (or birding) on public lands managed by BLM-California can be a very rewarding experience.

Here are some lists of birds spotted on various areas of public land managed by the Bureau of Land Management's California field offices:

And please remember:  Birds are among the most visible wildlife at many BLM-California locations. Some of the most commonly-seen (or sometimes rare) birds are listed under "Animals you may see here" at Watchable Wildlife sites.
