I have visited the several hundred thousand strong N. Gannet colony on Bonaventure Island at the tip of Quebec’s Gaspe Peninsula. I would assume many of the gannets migrating along the east coast do make it to that colony (but just an assumption).    The sight of the gannets literally feet away when you reach the colony (and murres, guillemots and some puffins thrown in) is absolutely spectacular, as is that whole trip (7+ hours’ drive north from Quebec City) with numerous stops along the way for sea and boreal birding, and, if you choose to stop for whale watching in the Saguenay River, a subsequent ferry crossing of the St. Lawrence.  (There are many places to cross and the ferry serves decent food and Pit Caribou beer, a Gaspe microbrewery.)   There is also an isolated caribou colony in the Gaspe, which unfortunately on our trip weather prohibited the hike up the mountain in Parc National de la Gaspésie (where we stayed two nights) to see the herd which is considered endangered.  A consolation was waking to dozens of evening grosbeaks gritting under the car tires in gravel driveways.  I do not think any birder would be disappointed in this trip to which you should give a week (and black flies weren’t bad in June except in one place)

Last weekend on the Linnaean S. I. field trip, we saw this spectacle of N. Gannets. from Conference House.  Are they migrating?  They seem to be seen in the same vicinity.

High tide at Fort Hamilton, The Narrows, was 8:49 AM. I wonder if tide has any influence on their location. Just a thought.

I was treated to a spectacular Northern Gannett show this morning at Ceaser’s Bay Brooklyn, with well over 1000, actively fishing. They all seemed to stay north of the Verrazano Bridge and I verified that by checking several  other spots north of that location.


The only other highlights of note from covering other Brooklyn Coastal sites were two Lesser Black-backed Gulls, a 2CY and 1CY (calendar year). Both observed at Coney Island Creek.


Surprisingly, not a lot of Gulls at the usual loafing spots along the belt (Gravesend Bay). Some were just too far out to get a definitive ID on. Though I did look carefully, hoping for something of interest.
