I went to the BPQ summer outing to Sainte Martine. It was a nice morning for bird watching. There were many shore birds and ducks further out.

There was a Peregrine Falcon looking over things.

On the island, in the middle of the river, there were Great Blue Herons, Black-crowned Night Herons and an Egret. I could not get a shot of the Black-crowned Night Herons.
