Species Identification

Currently this section of the website contains profiles of most North Dakota game species and many of the species listed in the state's Species of Conservation Priority program. More species will be added as time allows.



Other Resources

The Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center (USGS) website is an excellent resource for more information on species and ecology in North Dakota.

eBird, a website maintained by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Audubon, is a tremendous resource for both birders and casual wildlife observers alike. The site includes a searchable database of recent species observations in North Dakota and the world.

All About Birds, another website maintained by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, is an excellent bird identification website.
