The Pacific Flyway is the major migration route for over 350 species of birds in North and South America. Stretching nearly 15,000 km (9,000 miles) from Alaska to Patagonia, millions of birds travel the route each year, including Long-billed Dowitchers, Lesser Snow Geese and Western Sandpipers.
British Columbia’s position on the Pacific Flyway makes it an ideal rest stop for migratory species. Each year, over 8 million waterfowl and 20 million shorebirds utilize BC’s wetlands to nest, to spend the winter and to rest during migration to other parts of the continent.
Well written and informative! I've been to the Pacific Flyway way down South at the Salton Sea.
