At Cap Tormente you can choose a number of different hikes that wind through different bird habitats; down by the shores of the St. Lawrence, through meadows, the woods or the cliffs where raptors nest. However you are also wise to make your presence known so you don’t surprise any bears along the trails. Fortunately, we saw lots of bear droppings but did not encounter any of the bears reportedly hanging about.
Even though it wasn’t migration season, there was lots to see and we were able to find a number of birds we hadn’t seen before including Bobolinks, a Chestnut-sided Warbler (look closely at the picture below) and Black-crowned Night Herons.
Black-crowned Night Heron
This was the best shot I could get but there were also a number of herons in this pond and two Night Herons! Cap Tormente was well worth the visit and an incredible place to wander around. We will be back!
