Birds of Iowa


Welcome to the Birds of Iowa website. This site contains photos and information about birds I have photographed in Iowa and other places. I have also added photos of amphibians, bats, flowers, fungi, mammals, salamanders, snails, snakes and turtles.


This is a list of lizard species found in Iowa. The data in the individual pages is found in the Iowa DNR publication "The Lizards and Turtles of Iowa" which can be procured from the DNR. This data is reprinted with the permission of the Iowa DNR.
