Bird Watching

Bird watchers can explore the detailed nature and wildlife of Whitewater Lake. The lake’s shallowness and large size (22,000 acres on average) as well as abundance and variety of vegetation combine to make the region ideal grounds for the nesting and staging of more than 250 species of birds.

As a result of such biodiversity as well as its high concentrations of waterfowl, shorebirds and Tundra Swans, Whitewater Lake has been recognized as a Manitoba Wildlife Management Area, a Priority Bird Habitat of Canadian Importance and designated an Important Bird Area.

Whitewater Lake is located 15 minutes west of Boissevain. Examples of some of the species sighted at the marsh include:

  • Burrowing Owls
  • Ferruginous Hawks
  • Baird’s Sparrows
  • Loggerhead Shrike
  • Cattle Egrets
  • Snowy Egrets
  • White Face Ibises
