Bald Eagles in a tree
Vancouver is a terrific city for bird watchers.
Ducks, geese, swans, herons and many other species that migrate along the Pacific Flyway have called a Vancouver park or sanctuary home. Watch for bald eagles soaring above.
Stanley Park is the crown jewel of Vancouver's parks, and its great blue heronry is the oldest bird sanctuary in the vicinity. Each year, scores of herons build nests and raise chicks here. On a larger scale, Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary and Boundary Bay Park attract thousands of birds on their annual migration. More than 250 bird species have been spotted at the Reifel bird sanctuary.
At the Bloedel Conservatory in Queen Elizabeth Park, countless free-flying tropical birds perch in exotic trees and plants.
