Northern Gannets from Newfoundlad - target bird found at cabin Sept 2013

I really wanted to see a Northern Gannet. Donna was looking out the window and said gannet. I grabbed my camera and ran. Yes we had 3 circling far over the water but you can clearly (well not so clearly) see the grey beak and the yellow patch at neck. For three days the gannets circled the bay. I have always wanted to see one. The funny part was I read some of the birding reports in Toronto and guess what sighting they had - yup a gannet.

  1. Good sighting! We saw thousands up close at St. Kilda two years ago (off Scotland).
