Today's blog is a photo- fest from Nova Scotia, courtesy of my friend Ronnie d'Entremont. Ronnie was gracious enough to take me birding a couple of times during my recent visit, and he shared some of the best spots and best birds to be found in the area.
Ronnie got excellent photos of the Atlantic Puffins carrying food for their young.
Stunning, is it not? How he got these shots from a bouncing boat, I'll never know.
A fly-by Atlantic Puffin, carrying food. This must be the closest thing on earth to a flying penguin.
Hudsonian Godwits are the default godwit for this area. Their migration path often brings them through these shores and islands. We saw four at one time, which was a breath-taking sight. Thank you to Ronnie for sharing your amazing photography with us.
My thanks to Ronnie for his excellent services as a bird guide, and the added bonus of a trip to The Historical Acadian Village of Nova Scotia, to be featured in the next blog.
