Iles de la Madeleine, Quebec, Canada
I have lived on the Magdalen Islands all my life and have been birding since 1991. We find on average 200 species a year. The total species recorded so far for the islands is over 320 species. The endangered breeding species are: Piping Pplover (only nesting grounds remaining in Quebec ) the Roseate Tern and the Horned Grebe, Nelson's Sharp-tailed Sparrow. Also nesting on the island is a small colony of Black-headed Gulls. Bird Rock and Brion Islands located 32 and 16 kilometres from the main islands offer spectacular views of the many Northern Gannets, Common and Thick-billed Murres also Black-legged Kittiwakes and Atlantic Puffins. The thick-billed Murre colony is the most southernly in North America. Also a good numbers of shorebirds (26 species) are seen during each fall migration (August-September).
