Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia was home for much of our life and it provided us with the basis for much of our bird watching activity. We owned two rural properties so many of these photos were taken in our back yards and gardens. Nova Scotia is on the migratory path for many North American shorebirds and the large flocks of sandpipers and plovers are a highlight of many people’s trips. Several protected areas exist including shorelines, salt marshes and estuaries that provide excellent viewing. The Nova Scotia Bird Society provides a good online starting point for birding hot spots in the province. Some of the better birding sites in Nova Scotia we have visited include Evangeline Beach, Digby Neck and Belleisle Marsh.

Current Nova Scotia bird count: 176
