On the way out to your boat you’ll be walking by egrets, herons, pelicans, cormorants, osprey, magnificent frigate bird, seagulls, terns and others before reaching the dock. Loreto is an excellent bird watching destination. A great place to start is right at the Marina in the early morning.
On land and in the mountains you will encounter hummingbirds, hawks, eagles, owls, finches, roadrunners, quail, dove, raven, woodpecker and turkey vultures among others. Many birds spend the winter here and migrate north for the summer but Loreto is home to many resident bird species. Any source of water on land and up in the mountains will attract birds.
This gallery features resident and migrating birds.
