Birding

birdingThe Brothers Islands are home to the largest Canadian population of Roseate Terns. The Roseate Tern is an endangered species under the Nova Scotia Endangered Species Act.

Approximately 50 % of the Canadian Roseate Tern population nests in this location. Arctic Terns (Sterna paradisaea) and Common Terns (Sterna hirundo) also nest here. The islands are located approximately 4 kilometers off the coast of West Pubnico. In 1999, this site was identified as an Internationally Important Bird Area (IBA) by Bird Studies Canada (BSC).

In addition to this site there are many other regions such as Rocco Point, Wedgeport, and Comeau’s Hill- just to name a few, that are a bird lover’s paradise. Grab your binoculars and birding guide (4.3 MB) and come pay us a visit.
