Wildlife of Big White
We are lucky enough to have an incredible wilderness environment. Those of us who work on the mountain all year get to see an amazing diversity of wildlife. Lately we have seen three different moose hanging around the mountain, two males and a female. This got us talking over coffee about what animals and birds we have seen over the years up here.
Animals: Black Bear, Grizzly Bear, Bobcat, Cougar, White Tail Deer, Mule Deer, Moose, Porcupine, Elk, Coyote, Wolf, Woverine, Yellow Bellied Marmot, Chipmunk, Hare, Pine Martin, Ermine
Birds: Whiskey Jack, Stellar Jay, Cliff Swallow, Ptarimgan, Killdeer, Mountain Blue Bird, Raven, Chickadee
We also get migrating ducks and other birds, that stop over on the mountain. Unfortunately we haven't been able to positively identify which species they are.
I'm sure there are lots of other birds and animals that call Big White home, but they stay well hidden. If you have seen any other animals let us know!
