ECOTOURS & TRAVEL BIRDS
Some of Huntington Beach's famous world travelers include birds of all sorts. Located on the Pacific Flyway, these migrating guests stop and spend a few days, weeks or months between their world trips.
Located in a wetlands area called Bolsa Chica, the birds come sleep, drink, eat and play. And the tourists visiting love to watch them do their thing.
If you have time, drop by the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve, Central Park's Shipley Nature Center or Central Park to spot some of the more exotic visitors to the city.
