Thompson Okanagan

Bird Watching

Bald Eagles in a tree

Some of BC's best birding happens in the Thompson Okanagan.

It contains one of the last, large, undeveloped marsh areas in central BC and a great number of lakes, many of which are havens for uncommon bird species.

The winters in much of the region are mild and many species make permanent homes there. During the spring and fall migrations, vast numbers of birds descend on the region to nest or rest before continuing northward.

The Vaseux Lake Migratory Bird Sanctuary near Penticton, the Robert W. Starratt Wildlife Sanctuary near Valemount, and the Salmon Arm Bay Nature Reserve near Kamloops are a few ideas for a birding excursion.
