This adventure tour will take you to the remote South Okanagan protected areas in a trip full of contrasts and great diversity of species. Throughout the year over 300 species of birds can be seen in the Okanagan Valley including the rarely seen yellow-breasted chat, bobolink, long billed curlew or white-headed woodpecker
One third of the South Okanagan is included in the “Provincial Land Reserve/Protected Area”. These lands are broken into a mosaic of marshes, pastures, rivers and dry desert. This varied habitat is one of the best refugees in Canada for birds such as Western Bluebird, Black Chinned Hummingbird and Clark’s Nutcracker Jay. In addition there are significant populations of waterfowl, limicolae, nightjars, raptors and passerines.
Planning Tip: This tour includes multiple locations in a variety of bird habitats. Plan your tour for early morning or dusk to increase the chance of locating the more elusive species.
