“The Long Beach Peninsula is a Birder’s Paradise!”
Herons. Pelicans. Murrelets. Bald Eagles. Hawks. Plovers. Sandpipers. Gulls. Swans Hummingbirds…the list of birds that frequent the Peninsula is seemingly endless. Click here for a list of birds regularly viewed on the Peninsula, noted by season. This list includes links to photos and additional information about local species. Here is a print-friendly bird checklist to use while you are here.
Remember to follow birding ethics:
- Respect private property; do not trespass.
- Stay on trails and avoid disturbing habitat.
- Observe and photograph birds without disturbing them.
- Never chase or flush birds. Walk slowly and stay concealed.
- Do not use recordings to attract birds.
