Day Trip to the Reifel Bird Sanctuary in Delta

British Columbia has dozens of amazing outdoor activities where people can get up close and personal with nature. Once such location is the George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary which is home to hundreds of species of permanent and migratory birds throughout the year.

The Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary is located on Westham Island in Delta, British Columbia and its amazing! For $4 an adult ($2 for Seniors and Children) visitors can walk along pathways through several different ecosystems such as marshes, farmland, forest and fields. Here, thousands of birds call this region home ranging from waterfowl to shorebirds to birds of prey, songbirds and more!Lookout and Mallard Ducks at the Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary

We saw some amazing birds such as the elusive and rare Sandhill Crane, many Red-Winged Blackbirds, Hawks, an Owl, Eagles, Wood Ducks and what must have been thousands of Mallards! I suggest you bring your own birdseed (not bread as its bad for birds) or buy a packet for $0.50 as it was well worth it!

Perfect for people of all ages, the George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary definitely gets our stamp of approval! Make sure you bring a camera, birdseed, binoculars and a bird book (and hiking boots as it can be quite muddy) - you won't be disappointed!
