Watch millions of shorebirds migrating through Cordova! Every May in this area people can witness a unique natural phenomenon. It may be especially interesting for wildlife photographers because the pictures taken during the migration can be truly amazing.

Around five millions of shorebirds, raptors, waterfowls, and songbir​ds take a short break on the Copper River Delta during their way back from the wintering areas. Besides pure birdwatching, you can join Copper River Delta Shorebird Festival; includes competitions, meetings, and some fun events too.
