Delta, BC, is well-known amongst bird enthusiasts as the place to see and be seen. While migratory birds steal the show October-April, a variety of waterfowl and other bird species call Delta home in the summer months. Start your bird tour at Boundary Bay Regional Park, navigating the boardwalks and trails cutting through the marshland and tall grasses. Head over to the George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary and take a tour through acres of protected habitat. Finish up the day at the Delta Nature Reserve at Burns Bog, where interesting birds can also be seen.
Did you know that there’s a local farmers’ market nearly every week in Delta, BC? Visit the Tsawwassen Farmers Market every Saturday, and the North Delta Farmers Market on Sundays.
