Shorebirds and Boreal Birds of British Columbia

Join us on this late summer trip to search for passerine and shorebird migrants from coastal wetlands to the north Cascade Mountains. At Boundary Bay, migration of shorebirds will be in full swing. Red Knot, Semipalmated Sandpiper, Buff-breasted Sandpiper and Stilt Sandpiper are all possible. At Manning
Provincial Park we will look for Boreal Chickadee, Three-toed Woodpecker, Pine Grosbeak, and Spruce Grouse. On top of fantastic migration birding, we will spend time in the picturesque Vancouver, BC.

 

Visit beautiful British Columbia!

Join British Columbia expert, Stefan Schlick, on this unusual late summer trip that includes habitats as opposite as coast and mountains. Birds are no longer singing, but migration of shorebirds and passerines is already in full swing.

Join British Columbia expert, Stefan Schlick, on this unusual late summer trip that includes habitats as opposite as coast and mountains. Birds are no longer singing, but migration of shorebirds and passerines is already in full swing.

We will spend over a day at various access points at Boundary Bay looking for shorebirds. You can never predict what is showing up, but the Boundary is one of the prime shorebird areas along the west coast. Red Knot, Semipalmated Sandpiper, Buff-breasted Sandpiper, and Stilt Sandpiper are all possible.

Then we will work our way east to Manning Provincial Park where we will be staying at the lodge in the park for two nights. Our targets there are Boreal Chickadee, Three-toed Woodpecker, Pine Grosbeak, and Spruce Grouse.

Our final destination of this trip is the Okanogan Valley, one of the finest birding spots in the area where we will be able to bird boreal settings again, as well as a variety of lower elevations.
