Birding in the Kootenay Rockies gives you the chance to view some of BC's most intriguing bird species.
More than 250 of them call the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area home, while the Columbia River provides wetland habitat for waterfowl, herons, ospreys and eagles. Moberly Marsh near Golden protects the northern portion of the Columbia River Wetlands, and the Wasa Sloughs (north of Cranbrook) are home to waterfowl, eagles, osprey, herons and turkey vultures as well as Canada geese.
Wings Over the Rockies is an annual spring bird festival with more than 50 events over a weeklong period, including nature walks, paddling tours, photography courses, and heritage tours.
