Bird Watching in Prince William Sound

Many bird species can be seen around Valdez or in Prince William Sound. Bald eagles and magpies can be seen around town. Consider wildlife viewing from our many hiking trails, or visit the fish hatchery where birds prey on salmon. Local wildlife tour operators are available to take you into Prince William Sound to see rookeries for kittiwakes and puffins.
