Diving Birds of Nova Scotia

February 05, 2024

During my recent circuit of the Sambro Loop I photographed a few diving birds. They are usually far off shore so the images require severe editing and enlarging. Sometimes one is in the right place as they surface and the photographer is not spotted. Nova Scotia diving birds are wary due to the Nova Scotia habit of killing them for sport. I never understood the need to kill diving birds since their flesh is necessarily fishy tasting and not in a pleasant way so I have been told.
