Scores of bird-watchers head to George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary every year to observe the diverse, abundant avian life. Peregrine falcons, Siberian swans, bald eagles, blue herons, and over 260 other species inhabit the sanctuary, which provides ample opportunity to see these birds in the wild. Find out when the snow geese migration takes place to witness the wondrous sight of 80,000 geese descending upon the sanctuary before their long journey to Siberia. Wooden hides, an observation tower, and 3 km (1.8 mi) of winding trails all offer excellent vantage points for observing birds. Use our Delta vacation trip planner to visit George C.

  • This is an excellent natural area for walking and in every season there are many species of birds and ducks. There also cranes that live here there even breed and the resident birds make the park.

  • Great place to go walking and birdwatching. They also have a small picnicking area with tables. The gift shop sells various bird and nature related items and small packets of bird seed to feed the birds while you are there. Although this is obvious to the hobby birdwatchers, it may not be to everyone; At different times of the year you will see different birds as a lot of the birds seen in the Sanctuary are Migratory.
  • Great place to visit to see different wildlife. Birds and animals are very friendly and will ear right our of your hands. Tour guides are professional Biologist's and have a wealth of knowledge and experience at the bird sanctuary. It is distance to travel but worth the time.
  • Great birding spot. However there is an entrance fee and they cater more to families than birders, e.g. they sell food to feed the birds at the entrance. I prefer the public parks for birding.
  • Everyone should visit this magnetic sanctuary. It’s really AWESOME. Don’t miss it by any chance!
  • Best place to see birds up close! Love going here.
