Winter Bird Identification
See comparisons and field marks of Jackson Hole birds in winter
Click HERE to download a pdf of "Selected Winter Birds of Jackson Hole," by local author, artist, and naturalist, Susan Marsh.
In "Selected Winter Birds," Susan presents side-by-side photos of local species that can be difficult to distinguish. She also points out key field marks showing what to look for--especially helpful to know when birding in winter conditions such as the fog or blowing snow we often have during the annual Christmas Bird Count! In addition, many of the comparisons are relevant to local birders throughout the year.
In this photo a Northern Pygmy Owl, one of two winter small owl species, has caught a starling.
