Birds…Birds…Millions of Birds

In the fall, millions of waterfowl flock into the province on their southward journey – creating exceptional opportunities for birding throughout the province. A Saskatchewan birding trail guide will steer you in the right direction to the next spectacular birding locale.
Visit the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area (North America’s oldest bird sanctuary – established in 1887) – a great location to spy on the elusive whooping crane.

See the Piping Plover and more than 30 other species of shorebirds near the Chaplin Lake area – a Western Hemispheric Shorebird Reserve Network site. The Quill Lakes marsh network attracts numerous shorebird species, as well as the Ferruginous Hawk and Peregrine Falcon. If your interest is birds, chances are Saskatchewan may be in your best interests too!
