Bring your birding books, guide and binoculars and start scanning the shorelines, wetlands, woodlands and meadows for the host of birds that inhabit our region. Some 450 bird species are residents or visitors to our region each year, and there’s always the chance of encountering a real rarity like a pelican or an endangered species like a Piping Plover. Along the South Shore you’ll want to explore Cape Sable Island, connected to the mainland by a causeway, and visit two important bird areas on the island at Daniels Head and The Hawk. Other great birding sites in the South Shore region are found at Port Joli, Western Head, Port Clyde, Jordan Falls and of course at Kejimkujik National Park Seaside.
