Every autumn, hundreds of thousands of geese fly over Piaam to the south. They spend the night on the fields around the terp village. It's a beautiful sight. The nature areas outside the dikes in the IJsselmeer just across the dike at Piaam are also a well-known place for bird watchers. In addition, the village houses a small bird museum that has unfortunately been (temporarily) closed since 2019. Check the museum's website for the latest information.
