On to Ile D’Orleans, the large island just east of Quebec City! Not a lot of opportunity to do any birdwatching but we did note a few geese on the northern shore of the island and a couple of busy Kildeer.

From Ile D’Orleans, we headed to Beaupre, back on the mainland and planned to spend some time exploring Cap Tormente which was recommended by an ornithologist that we ran into at Long Point earlier in the summer. He explained that it is well known for the thousands and thousands of Snow Geese that gather there during the Spring migration so they can rest up before heading north over the Canadian Shield.
