Prek Toal (Bird Sanctuary)

The biosphere covers 31,282 hectares at the northwest tip of the Tonle Sap Lake and plays host to species including Greater and Lesser Adjuncts, Black-headed Ibis, Painted Stork, Milky Stork, Spot-billed Pelican, Grey-Headed Fish Eagle and many more species. The best time of year for viewing is the dry season when flocks of migratory birds congregate. As the dry season progresses and the water recedes, the number of bird's increases but the travel to some of the more important viewing areas becomes more difficult.
