Lyn Hancock, who is a well known Northern travel writer and has visited almost every community in NWT and Nunavut says: "Bathurst Inlet Lodge is not only the highlight of the region; it is the highlight of a vacation in the whole Northwest Territories and Nunavut. It offers all - in one place- that a visitor might seek from an arctic experience."

at this location, or may only be present in migration. However, documented sightings of
each species noted below have been made in the Northwest Territories. Consult the
Breeding Bird Survey or Christmas Bird Count data on the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center website
