Take in the Sights and Sounds of the National Parks

Enjoy a nature break and listen to birds from America's greatest natural wonders

smithsonian.com

We've pulled together beautiful photos of some of America's most breathtaking scenery and paired them with bird sounds compiled by the National Park Service. With natural habitats ranging from deserts to arctic tundra to tropical rainforests and everything in between, a wide variety of bird species make their homes in the public lands. Some, like the yellow-rumped warbler, are common, some like the ‘ua’u, are nearing extinction and others, like the bald eagle, have made a comeback.

American robins can be found throughout Yellowstone National Park. They make their homes everywhere from cities to the Alaskan wilderness.
