Parc-nature de l’Île-de-la-Visitation

It was a chilly morning about 6 degrees Celsius with a strong wind from the North with some sun and cloudy periods. My daughter Shannon and Erik went walking and birding with me on the BPQ walk led by Joel.


At a little inlet, we saw American Black Ducks and a pair of American Wigeons.
