Arkansas Birds & Watchable Wildlife

American Bald Eagle

Exciting opportunities for birding and wildlife observation are found within easy reach of every Arkansas community, including the state's largest cities.

The success of habitat preservation efforts in The Natural State is evident in several populations of Arkansas birds and wildlife, including the endangered Red-cockaded Woodpecker, in the growing herd of elk in Arkansas reintroduced along the along the Buffalo National River in the northern Ozark Mountains and in the increasing numbers of American black bears in the wild across the state.

Some 400 species of Arkansas birds, more than 155 species of butterflies, and some 20 animals listed as endangered or threatened by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are included in the state's wild menagerie. To aid in the protection of the wildlife and birds of Arkansas and to maximize visitors' enjoyment of the state's wild species, an Ethics & Tips section is included on this site.

Places where our wild relatives dwell in unspoiled settings remain plentiful in Arkansas. We invite you to visit them, to respectfully observe the magnificent wildlife and birds of Arkansas that inhabit them and to cherish the web of life to which we all belong.
