- A-Z Animals
Wyoming has 437 documented birds which the Wyoming Game and Fish Department accepts as per the May 2016 records. While 103 of the 437 species are accidental dwellers, seven have been introduced.
Wyoming is less populated and endowed with a rich and varied topography from mighty mountains to scenic plains, making it an ideal birding destination. Some prominent birding hotspots include the Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, and Seedskadee National Wildlife Refuge. Birds like the trumpeter swan, golden eagle, cinnamon teal, and American dipper inhabit here.
The official state bird of Wyoming has been the western meadowlark since 1927.
