There are many, many lakes, rivers, estuaries and wetlands in the Thompson-Shuswap region ideal for birdwatching enthusiasts. Some of the lakes and rivers attracting birdwatchers to the region require hiking a trail to viewing platforms while others can be viewed from the comfort of your car or from a, nearby, viewing bench, picnic table or sandy beach.
Some of the lakes, rivers, estuaries and wetlands fall within the migratory path of birds while others become the nesting and feeding grounds of the local bird wildlife. Some of the birdwatching destinations fall within beautifully maintained parks while others are located in rugged, remote wilderness locations.
