With a prime position along the Pacific Flyway and a multitude of protected wildlife habitats, British Columbia is an exceptional place for birding.

Birdwatching enthusiasts will find hundreds of species in the grasslands, estuaries, mountain ranges, and rainforests of the province. Common sightings include iconic whiskey jacks (grey/Canada jay), bald eagles, great blue herons, and trumpeter swans. It’s a thrill to observe these fascinating creatures in their natural habitat.
