Important Bird Areas: Sierra Nevada

The sites listed here come from The American Bird Conservancy Guide to the 500 Most Important Bird Areas in the United States (2003). The Sierra Nevada mountains rise sharply from the basin and range to the east and slope gently toward California's Central Valley to the west. Lower elevations are dominated by lodgepole pine in the east and ponderosa pine in the west, with spruce, fir and alpine tundra at higher elevations. The forests in these mountains are home to Mountain Quail, Spotted Owl, White-headed Woodpecker and Hermit Warbler, while Nuttall's Woodpecker, Oak Titmouse and California Thrasher can be found in the foothills of the western slopes.
