Southwestern British Columbia

The Boundary Bay and Vancouver areas of southwestern British Columbia are home to a variety of bird life, both native and migratory to the area. The region receives all kinds of feathered visitors, including the great snowy owl that descends to the area in large numbers from the Arctic. In addition, bald eagles, pileated woodpeckers, and many other types of owls can be found in several protected parks throughout the land, many of which can be seen at Boundary Bay Regional Park and the Alaksen National Wildlife Area.
