Videos of Shorebirds and Surf at Martinique Beach

September 06, 2023

I'm new at video so my work will be a little rough for a time. These videos are from my recent visit to Martinique Beach, in my opinion the most magnificent beach in Nova Scotia although I have certainly not visited them all.

In the spring look for Ipswich Sparrows behind the beach ridge and on the kelp heaps particularly at the east end of the beach. The spit beyond the beach is well known for Blackpoll Warblers, Swainson's Thrush and giant mosquitoes. In the fall after the beaches clear of humans and dogs thousands of shore birds will forage the full length of the beach.
