In terms of birding around Cranbrook, our local checklist has 260 species. Depending on the time of year a good total for a couple days of serious birding could be upwards of 140 birds. The area has birds typical of the southern interior cordilleran zone. During migration we get species that are boreal or arctic breeders in addition to the resident and local breeders. The area is also referred to as the Serengeti of North America because of the healthy populations of large mammals. One cannot help but see Whitetail, Mule Deer and Elk, and with some work Bighorn Sheep, Mountain Goat and Black Bear can be seen. I am an amateur naturalist, and in addition to local birds am also very familiar with local butterflies, moths and dragonflies.
