Bird Watching

Bald Eagles in a tree

Surrounded by water and blessed with short, mild winters, Greater Victoria is a birder's paradise. More than 380 species have been recorded in the region!

A visiting birder can reasonably expect to sight up to 150 species during a three-week stay. Many species make Greater Victoria their home for some part of the year, including bald eagles and the critically endangered North American sky lark. The best birding happens during the spring and fall migrations, but hundreds of species live in the region year-round, so any time's a good time for birding in Victoria.

Some top bird watching spots in and near Victoria include Blenkinsop Lake, Witty's Lagoon Regional Park, Swan Lake, Esquimalt Lagoon, East Sooke Regional Park, Goldstream Provincial Park, Island View Beach Regional Park, and Ogden Point/Dallas Road.
