Birding

Birding in BC…So Easy…So Simple. Got binoculars?

If not, we have a pair plus birding books for use.

With two major salmon rivers and estuaries, the ocean on your doorstep and surrounding forests, birds are as diverse as the local marine life. The two most visible to the untrained eye will be the Bald Eagles – spot them perched in the ‘eagle’ tree outside our living room window and watch for the old grizzled eagle; we’ve named him Don of course. And there are the ravens; a fierce and crafty bird which widely figures in local indigenous lore as a mischief maker.

Shorebirds abound; as well as marsh and woodland species. Located well offshore, on calmer summer days, the open ocean Black-footed Albatross can be spotted.
