Birding at Cape Jouriman, NB.
June 16 @ 10:30 AM - 1:30 PM ADTFree
Registration for this event begins at 9:00 a.m., on Friday, June 1.
Weather permitting. If the destination’s rain forecast is for 3mm or more, consider this event cancelled.
Cape Jouriman Nature Centre is on the edge of the Northumberland Strait, on Route 16, next to the Confederation Bridge to PEI. Watch for the exit or you’ll end up in PEI. That’s not a bad thing; it’s just that the return trip on the bridge will add unneeded expense to your day.
It’s a 2.5-hour drive from Dartmouth so we’ll set off early to arrive at 10:30 a.m.
According to the Cape Jouriman website, “86 species of nesting birds, there is much to see during the breeding season. Characteristic nesting species include: Osprey, Common Yellowthroat, Willet and Nelson’s Sharp-tailed Sparrow.”
The website notes that there is a restaurant on site but it hasn’t been updated for the 2018 season so I’ unsure at the time of writing that it will be open. Check their website closer to the event and then determine if you’re packing a lunch or buying local.
As this is a public venue, guests are welcome but they can’t get in the way of the photographers.
