Fish & Wildlife of the Montane Forest
The montane forest is home to a variety of wildlife species. Some of these animals are year-round residents like the snowshoe hare, while others are seasonal visitors such as the Lewis' woodpecker that migrates south for the winter. Wildlife species listed on this page were selected because of their adaptations that help them survive in a forested mountain environment. Click on the images below to view the Animal Field Guide.
