From Cap Torment we headed on up the north shore of the mighty river as far as the Saguenay at Tadoussac.
We saw a fair number of Blue-winged Teals as well as Golden-eyes and Cormorants in the river in addition to Canada Geese and Mallards. And along the shore we spotted Bank Swallows flying in and out of the holes in the clay-coloured cliffs.

And finally, we got a good look at (and listen  to) a pair of eyecatching Evening Grosbeaks at Taddoussac as well as and Eastern Bluebird.

And of course, what better way to kill some time while waiting for the ferry from Saint Simeon to Riviere de Loup than to wander around checking out the birds.
