Grand Manan - Birds and Whales
Monday 17th - Wednesday 28th August 2015
Just to the north of the Canada/USA border lies New Brunswick's Bay of Fundy. This area hosts masses of migrant birds preparing to head off on their migration journeys. The tide rises and falls by a staggering 14 metres and the result is a huge area of the bay's shore becomes a feeding place for thousands of waders of various species. The sea also holds a number of cetaceans including Fin, Minke and Humpback Whales and the extremely rare Northern Right Whale. These magnificent creatures all assemble in this region to feed their young, play and mate. The upwelling of ocean currents also attracts lots of seabirds including Phalaropes, Petrels and wildfowl.
On land we explore a variety habitats in search of warblers, woodpeckers and a host of other bird species. This is truly an exciting time to visit this part of Canada.
