The Upper Foothills Wildlife

Grizzly Bear with cubAnimals of the Upper Foothills Subregion are similar to those of coniferous forests of the Lower Foothills and Subalpine Subregions. These include Pine Siskin, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, White-crowned Sparrow and Varied Thrush. Elk and both Black and Grizzly Bear are also characteristic. Species diversity is lower here, generally, than in the Lower Foothills Subregion because of a lower vegetational diversity, including few deciduous forest stands.
