Birds are in the spotlight from Tadoussac to Forestville, from September 22 to 25, during the 12th Festival of Migratory Birds of the North Shore. The Tadoussac Bird Observatory offers the general public and connoisseurs a unique and immersive experience in the ornithological universe through a multitude of activities.
Each fall, the north shore of the St. Lawrence is transformed into a huge migration corridor, one of the most important in northeastern North America. It is then possible to observe a beautiful variety of birds. On average, between 110 and 130 species are observed during the festival, including several rarities.
The event is held in the heart of one of the most beautiful regions of Quebec, bordered to the west by the majestic Saguenay Fjord, to the south by the ﬂeuve St. Lawrence estuary and to the north by the immense boreal forest.
The North Shore Migratory Bird Festival is based on a simple concept: to oﬀrir original ways of discovering birds to families, the curious, beginners and experienced birders. They will live a unique experience of proximity with birds through interpretative activities. Sea excursions, banding of little owls, guided outings by electric bicycle and on foot are on the program. A new family program is also developed with outdoor art workshops and evening activities.
