This is the only place where you can watch the wild crested ibis outdoors! Crested ibis observation tours begin at dawn.
Won't you come observe the figure of the crested ibis as it flutters its coral pink wings through the sky? Once on the brink of extinction, close to 450 crested ibises have now returned to the wild, once again gracefully flying across the skies of Sado. The population continues to increase with the birds reproducing naturally as was hoped. We will take you out in the early morning at dawn, the best time of day to observe the wild crested ibis.
