Bird Watching


Thanks to its coastal location and unspoiled habitat, some of the finest bird watching in the United States can be found at Point Reyes National Seashore. The part attracts so many migrating and wintering birds, that more than 450 species have been recorded, which is nearly half the number in the entire United States. The best places to view birds in the park are: Five Brooks Pond, Estero Trail, Muddy Hollow Trail, Abbotts Lagoon, Olema Marsh, the Lighthouse cliffs, and Bear Valley.
