Cape Chignecto Provincial Park

June 30, 2022

I visit Chignecto Provincial Park annually in my continuing and failed quest to find and photograph the Cape May Warbler and the Mourning Warbler. Occasionally I troop up to Amherst Point Migratory Bird Sanctuary and although I have seen Cape May Warbler here in the past I have not in recent years. The high pitched song of the Cape May Warbler makes it doubly hard to find since high frequencies do not carry far and are unidirectional. I did photograph the Mourning Warbler several years ago. It is a stunning bird!

Chignecto Provincial Park is a treasure and should be taken over by Environment Canada and converted into a national park, whilst simultaneously buying up surrounding land and kicking out the loggers that are devastating the local area.

Cape Chignecto

The clouds are always striking here probably due to the cool waters of the Head of the Bay of Fundy meeting the warm bluffs of Cape Chignecto causing an up welling of air currents and the subsequent formation of clouds.
