NEW! NOVA SCOTIA--CAPE BRETON
Shorebird Madness8 August 2013 - 16 August 2013, 9 days & 8 nights
From the spectacular tides of the Bay of Fundy, to the rolling farmlands, to the heath-lands of Cape Breton, there is no better highlights tour! Search for the rare Right Whale in the mouth of the Bay of Fundy, and Moose along the flower covered roadsides. The tremendous number of shorebirds at this time of year is legendary, known for their incredible aerial ballet and their flying skills as they elude the pursuit of Merlin and Peregrine Falcon. Boreal species that we may see include Gray Jay, Boreal Chickadee, Black-backed Woodpecker, and Spruce Grouse. Some nights are at Canada's four star lodges including The Pines, Keltic Lodge, and Liscombe Lodge. Cape Breton delights travelers with its high cliffs overlooking the Northern Atlantic and its quaint fishing villages, considered by some the most scenic vistas on the planet. Visit the Alexander Graham Bell Museum to learn about the life of this fascinating man. The scheduled leader is Andrew Griswold, director of Connecticut Audubon Society EcoTravel.
