During migration, the Peace River country experiences an influx of songbirds, waterbirds, raptors and other migratory birds.
Bird watching opportunities are found at a number of locations near Dawson Creek including McQueen's Slough, Radar Lake-Bear Mountain Recreational Area, Swan Lake Provincial Park, One Island Lake Provincial Park, and Kiskatinaw Provincial Park. Every December or January, volunteers help conduct a bird count.
Check in at the Dawson Creek Visitor Centre to pick up a copy of the "Birding Dawson Creek" brochure, which provides a comprehensive listing of birds that may be viewed in the area.
