Change in Plans

in Blog, Weekend Birding

Originally, Sharon and I were going to vacation on Campobello Island, NB next month. Those plans have changed. We will now be spending a week on [tag]Prince Edward Island[/tag] from October 6th through the 13th. We will be staying in a cottage on the east side of the island near the town of Brackley Beach. I won’t bore you with the “what for” in the change of plans.

From what I have found through research, October is the peak of [tag]bird[/tag] [tag]migration[/tag] on the island. And another plus is that there are plenty of [tag]lighthouses[/tag] to visit, which is another passion of ours. As I stated before, if I can get an internet connection, I will post reports during our time away.

For those readers that have been to PEI, if you can offer any birding tips or some “must see” areas of the island, please feel free to respond by commenting on this article. It would be greatly appreciated!

Our birding weekend was short. Rain dominated the daylight hours Saturday and Sunday was uneventful. We did get good close looks at a Juvenile Great Blue Heron, and watched a Belted Kingfisher fishing for a meal.

Enjoy our photos by clicking a thumbnail for a full sized view. As always, comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated.
