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. Make George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary part of your personalized Delta itinerary using our Delta trip builder tool.
George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary reviews
Lots of ducks and geese but not to many birds. It may have been to late in the day as we arrived around 2 pm. It was a beautiful sunny day meandering along the sanctuary paths. more »
We came back here two years later because we were unable to finish last time due to not having any hats or water. So we went to the sections we had not seen and had an amazing time. I like Bloedel... more »
Super fun place to watch and feed the birds. The nature walk is also very fun for the kids. Price is $5 per adult and $3 for kids and seniors. They won't let you enter after 4pm, but you have up to 5pm before they close the gate. The family really loves the place and we'll definitely come again
Excellent place to get up close with some birds. When I went in August, there were Canada geese and ducks everywhere. The office sells bags of seeds for the birds for only $1. One bag is more than enough for one person. They don't allow anyone to enter after 4pm so plan accordingly.
