Monterey Bay Birding

Monterey County is consistently ranked one of the top birding sites in the world. It has even won a couple titles as America’s birdiest county. Few places can match the diversity of habitats in the monterey bay. We have wooded and mountain areas, coastal wetlands, shoreline habitats and of course, the open ocean. Several make their home here year round, while many stop to rest while on migration. Birds benefit from the open spaces that cities like Monterey strive to protect. So come on down to the City of Monterey and experience a birder’s paradise. Take your binoculars and camera and go hiking. Take a pelagic seabird trip from Fisherman’s Wharf. Or, visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s resident birds in their beautiful aviary. This video will give you a sneak peak at the species you may encounter.
Very nicely done video on birding in Monterey County! There are just so many places to see birds – the wharf area, Lake El Estero, along the beach…
