Bird Watching

Bald Eagles in a tree

In Northern BC, bring your binoculars and cameras to spot some of the many bird species that make migratory stopovers in the region.

The indigenous population includes the osprey, the great horned owl, trumpeter swans and sandpipers.

Some popular locations for birding include parks and forests in Prince George, the Kispiox Valley and Prince Rupert, the Vanderhoof Bird Sanctuary, and Tyhee Lake Provincial Park near Smithers. Approximately 750,000 seabirds inhabit the remote Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site, including tufted puffins, rhinoceros auklets, ancient and marbled murrelets and the elusive horned puffin. Multi-day guided tours can be arranged.
