K'omoks IBA

K'omoks IBA is an amalgamation of former Important Bird Areas: Lambert Channel/Hornby Island, Baynes Sound, Comox Valley, and they share populations of waterbirds common to this area. The K'omoks Estuary has a new Royston Waterfront Trail which is ideal for Viewing and Photographing Birds. Visit Website
