Revelstoke is a prime location for spotting over 250 species of migrating and nesting birds.

You don't have to go far from downtown to spot birds in Revelstoke; there have been over 50 species recorded on the banks of the Columbia River, a short walk from town. Species are most diverse in May through to September. The Skunk Cabbage Boardwalk in Mount Revelstoke National Park was once the only site in British Columbia where breeding songbird populations are monitored on a regular basis through bird banding. When the summit of Mount Revelstoke National Park opens, not only will you have the chance to spot hawk owls, boreal chicadees, and blue grouse, you will also experience the spectacular wildflower blooms the park is known for. Mount Revelstoke National Park is also one of the only places in Canada that is home to four species of chickadees — Chestnut-Backed and Black-Capped (Giant Cedars Boardwalk), plus the Mountain and Boreal (summit).
