Bundle Up Biologists, There's Research To Be Done!
We biologists have plenty to keep busy, but we look forward to seeing your winter mammal pictures. Snow provides a great opportunity for photos of scat or tracks. The ground below bird feeders is a good place to check for squirrels and small mammals. It's also a good time to view mammals congregating, like elk. Bundle up, there are mammals to observe!
Mammal Checklist Updated
12/29/15 - If you have visited our Mammals page, you may have noticed our PA Mammal Checklist (also available here). Our goal is to provide the most helpful and accurate list possible, and therefore we've recently updated it. We have removed the outdated Wildlife Action Plan rankings and added a new column that shows whether or not a species can be found statewide. Good luck checking off your Pennsylvania mammal observations, and don't forget to share your photos!
