Birding in the Interlake


Birding (or birdwatching) has become one of the fastest growing hobbies in North America. As the name suggests, it’s the act of watching,monitoring, feeding, filming, or photographing birds — of which there are more than 450 different kinds in Canada. It is an affordable activity accessible to everyone. All that is needed is a good identification book (or app), a pair of binoculars and you’re ready to hit the trails. The Interlake region offers a rich diversity of habitats with our long shorelines, rivers and wetlands straddling the aspen-parkland, boreal and prairie biomes.We are also situated in the busiest migratory route in North America, used by billions of bird each year.
