Abstract: Boundary Bay Regional Park, managed by the Greater Vancouver Regional District Parks Department, offers outstanding bird viewing opportunities. The park is located on the western shore of Boundary Bay within the Fraser River Estuary, one of Canada’s most important ecosystems for migrating and wintering birds. This area is internationally significant and is designated as an Important Bird Area (IBA). Each year, Boundary Bay is used by 1.5 million birds from 20 countries. Fifty species of shorebirds and day counts of more than 100,000 waterfowl have been recorded. Birds and other wildlife depend on critical habitat in Boundary Bay, including salt and fresh water marshes, tidal mudflats, grassland, sand dunes and sandy shoreline. Migratory birds that rest and feed in the park, as well as ground-nesting birds, are sensitive to disturbance by people and dogs. For more information on Boundary Bay Regional Park, contact the Greater Vancouver Regional District Parks Department, West Area Office at 604-224-5739.
