Bald Eagles in a tree
With an inventory of more than 220 species including populations of interior, coastal, and boreal birds, Lillooet is a prime location for amateur bird watchers and ornithologists alike.
In the Lillooet Naturalist Society's Canyon to Alpine, Lillooet Hiking Guide birders will find a handy checklist of the best birding locations, whatever the season.
In the spring and summer, warblers and western tanagers find their way here, while beautiful harlequin ducks nests near Cayoosh Creek. As well, lazuli bunting, Bullock's oriole, western meadowlark, and the chukar, amongst hundreds more, make their home in the Lillooet area. Bald and golden eagles are sometimes seen.
