birding

Located on the Pacific Migratory Flyway, Delta lays claim to some of the best bird and wildlife viewing areas in the country and 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.Birds at Centennial Beach - photo by Lois Richardson
