Parc-nature de l’Île-de-la-Visitation


It was a nice and sunny morning for bird watching. I went to the BPQ walk at Parc nature de l’Île de la Visitation. Joel was our guide today. It was very educational. We saw 49 species of birds which includes 11 warbler species.



The warblers were very active near the chalet. They are small and fast birds. It take patience and lots of eyes to find them. Photographing warblers is challenging. Here are some shots of the warblers.

A Downy Woodpecker landed right next me. She was too close. I had to take a step back to take this shot.
