Best Time for Bird Watching

Lochinvar is a wonderful birding destination throughout the year. The best time for birders is when the migrant species are present – when many birds are in breeding plumage. This equates to the wet, summer months, from November to April. However, wildlife viewing is at its peak in the dry months, from July to October.
