Beautiful birds in Bac Lieu

 

Bac Lieu Province, around 100 km from the southernmost tip of Vietnam, is home to a popular bird sanctuary located in Hiep Thanh Commune of Bac Lieu Town.
The sanctuary is just around five kilometers from the town center. 

The Bac Lieu Bird Sanctuary is the vestige of a forest which ran along the East Sea coast and came into existence over a century ago.

It covers some 107 hectares and lies within the remaining 385 hectares of forest area.

The sanctuary is now home to 46 bird species, 60 fish species, seven frog species, 10 species of mammals, eight reptile species, and 100 species of plants.

Moreover, the rich flora and fauna of the enclosure gives the lush, natural area a feeling of wonder and enchantment.

Bac Lieu Bird Sanctuary is a favorite destination of both nature lovers and researchers and visitors will easily find several types of birds listed in Vietnam's "Red Book" of endangered species of plants and animals.

In August and September, flocks of birds gather at the sanctuary to build nests and breed.

The forest comes alive with the singing of various kinds of birds and trees overflow with hundreds of birds' nests.

The best time to visit Bac Lieu Bird Sanctuary is in the early morning when most birds leave their nests to begin a day of feeding.

Alternatively, at sunset the birds can also be seen more easily as they return to their nests to sleep.

The area is also popular amongst photographers who come to the sanctuary for one-of-a-kind shots of the breathtakingly beautiful birds.

Although it has potential for further development, the Bac Lieu Bird Sanctuary remains off the radar of most large tourist companies and thus, tourists wishing to visit the area must organize travel themselves or seek out a local guide.
