I have visited the several hundred thousand strong N. Gannet
colony on Bonaventure Island at the tip of Quebec’s Gaspe
Peninsula. I would assume many of the gannets migrating along the
east coast do make it to that colony (but just an assumption).
https://www.apogeephoto.com/the-gannets-of-bonaventure-island/ The
sight of the gannets literally feet away when you reach the colony
(and murres, guillemots and some puffins thrown in) is absolutely
spectacular, as is that whole trip (7+ hours’ drive north from
Quebec City) with numerous stops along the way for sea and boreal
birding, and, if you choose to stop for whale watching in the
Saguenay River, a subsequent ferry crossing of the St. Lawrence.
(There are many places to cross and the ferry serves decent food
and Pit Caribou beer, a Gaspe microbrewery.) There is also an
isolated caribou colony in the Gaspe, which unfortunately on our
trip weather prohibited the hike up the mountain in Parc National
de la Gaspésie (where we stayed two nights) to see the herd which
is considered endangered. A consolation was waking to dozens of
evening grosbeaks gritting under the car tires in gravel
driveways. I do not think any birder would be disappointed in
this trip to which you should give a week (and black flies
weren’t bad in June except in one place)

Last weekend on the Linnaean S. I. field trip, we saw this
spectacle of N. Gannets. from Conference House. Are they
migrating? They seem to be seen in the same vicinity.

High tide at Fort Hamilton, The Narrows, was 8:49 AM. I wonder
if tide has any influence on their location. Just a thought.

I was treated to a spectacular Northern Gannett show this
morning at Ceaser’s Bay Brooklyn, with well over 1000,
actively fishing. They all seemed to stay north of the
Verrazano Bridge and I verified that by checking several
other spots north of that location.

The only other highlights of note from covering other
Brooklyn Coastal sites were two Lesser Black-backed Gulls,
a 2CY and 1CY (calendar year). Both observed at Coney
Island Creek.

Surprisingly, not a lot of Gulls at the usual loafing
spots along the belt (Gravesend Bay). Some were just too
far out to get a definitive ID on. Though I did look
carefully, hoping for something of interest.

Cheers,
