In Zion National Park, a diversity of environments is compressed into a relatively small space. While birdwatchers lack the peregrine falcon's luxury of 100 mile per hour, you can still visit Zion's different habitats within a day. u r u - Spring A Birds may be seen in almost any habitat type. r u r c r - Winter W On or near water areas, including the Virgin River and tributaries, Kolob and Blue Springs Reservoirs, and Springdale Ponds. r - Fall E Evergreen woodlands—including fir, ponderosa pine, aspen, and associated vegetation—plus mountain meadows, side canyons, and canyon walls; such as the upper parts of the West Rim Trail, Potato Hollow, Hidden Canyon, and much of the Kolob Canyons area. r u x c r x Summer P Pinyon-juniper woodlands, including the sloping sides of Zion Canyon, possibly with interspersed scrub oak thickets.

Fall † common loon † pied-billed grebe † horned grebe † eared grebe † western grebe † Clark’s grebe Summer Loons & Grebes D Desert sagebrush and blackbrush areas, including grassy canyon bottomlands; e.g. Huber Wash, Coalpits Wash, parts of Chinle Trail, and fields around Springdale. Spring Amazingly, a peregrine falcon can be within a talon’s grasp of each of Zion's major habitats during a flight lasting only a few minutes. Habitats Spring Some 8,000 feet above sea level a peregrine falcon cruises from its perch atop Zion's high plateau. A flock of band-tailed pigeons note its approach and bolt on noisy wings into a stand of ponderosa pines. The falcon careens over the edge of its looming sandstone world and drops roughly 2,000 feet along a sheer rock wall; white-throated swifts scatter to give it space. At the base of the cliffs the raptor's flight becomes more horizontal. From the pygmy forest of pinyon and juniper, pinyon jays squawk their disapproval, and further down, along the Virgin River, a black-headed grosbeak eyes the peregrine from the cover of a big cottonwood. Soon, the falcon's shadow is streaking across searing desert terrain, where a roadrunner abandons its pursuit of lizards to avoid becoming prey itself.
