From misty coastal mountains right down to the rich estuaries of the Fraser River Delta, there is plenty of diversity to explore around Vancouver. Year-round western specialties like Sooty Grouse, Red-breasted Sapsucker, Northwestern Crow, Pacific Wren, and Varied Thrush should be of interest to most visiting birders. Winter is a fantastic time to visit when waterfowl and raptor numbers are at their peak, while spring and late summer/fall can produce an equally impressive spectacle of migrating shorebirds, and mixed flocks of songbirds.
Whether you’re a beginner wanting to learn more about local hotspots and common species, or a hardcore visiting birder targeting 4 or 5 lifers while here on a conference, we’re here to help!
*We can also arrange for a day-trip to Vancouver Island for the extremely localized Eurasian Skylarks, an any other specialties you may want to see.
