Kluane National ParkWebsite
This park, in the southwest corner of the Yukon, has Canada's highest peak, Mount Logan, and some of the most extensive icefields outside the polar region. The landscape includes mountain lakes, alpine meadows, tundra and swift cold rivers...
Old Crow FlatsWebsite
More than 100 bird species have been recorded on the Flats, including at least 21 species of waterfowl. The area is important as a breeding and moulting ground to some 500,000 waterfowl including ducks, swans, geese, three species of loon Gavia spp. and a variety of other waterbirds. Banding studies have shown these birds to be associated with all four North American Flyways. Waterfowl are more concentrated here than at other locations in the north.
Vuntut National ParkWebsite
Vuntut represents one of the Northern Yukon Natural Regions in Canada.
Yukon's Territorial ParksWebsite
Perhaps the most noteworthy of birds to live on Herschel is the colony of black guillemots, the largest in the Western Arctic. If you want to see the largest colony of black guillemots in the Western Arctic, visit the old Anglican mission house. They have taken over the abandoned building, nesting in the rafters. To keep their eggs from rolling away and to help preserve the historic structure, government biologists have built nest boxes on the roof for the birds...
1991 [July] - Blake MaybankReport

1998 [August] - Ed Burroughs - Bird RaceReport
We immediately pulled over to the shoulder of the road and looked for birds. We were rewarded with a White-crowned Sparrow, and I made some quick mental calculations. If we got one species in the first minute of Canadian birding we were going to be in triple digits in two hours! But wait, this was not the Northwest Territories, it was the Yukon Territory.
2001 [June] - Paul JonhesReport
The following is an account of a two week trip to the Yukon, north-eastern British Columbia and the Northwest Territories. During the first week (June 9 to June 14) I intensively birded the southern Yukon, north-eastern British Columbia and south-western Northwest Territories. At the beginning of the second week I met family members in Whitehorse. From June 15 to June 24 we traveled at a slower pace north to Inuvik and back to Whitehorse...
2007 [July] - Blake MaybankReport
Since there are very few birding trip reports from the Yukon and area, I've decided to offer this fairly thorough account...
