St.Brendan's Island Continued !

Every summer ever since i was born me and my family have travelled to the island to visit family but in recent years it has been a great time for me to go birding and it always beholds interesting birds !


This trip was no exception, with in 20 minutes of arriving i found a singing male magnolia warbler ! They are not very common and i sure wasn't expecting to see one here ! I also had a few other species in the alders that cover 40% of the island !

I also visited a sea gull and tern nesting island called shoal's island. It was almost overwhelming to see so many birds on a small Rocky outcrop in the ocean ! I should also mention to anyone that plans to go to a nesting island that it is very very stinky.......


I'm now VERY busy getting all my gear and other things I'm going to need for my trip like filters for my camera,camera batteries, hiking boots, thermal underwear and even a Newfoundland flag ! Only 9 days now !!!!
