Gannet seabirds Bonaventure Island Gaspe


Bonaventure Island’s Gannet Colony

With over 200,000 birds, Bonaventure Island is a magnificent place to visit and photograph. The park staff will boast that of the 200,000 seabirds living on the island, about 110,000 are Northern Gannets that return during the breeding season each year.

In this particular photograph of 3 Northern Gannets, I love the gesture and interaction between the birds.
