Northern Gannet (19) (Morus bassanus) User: Stephane  (See all photos - 26) (Comments - 13)
Canada (Québec) Parc national de l'Île-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Percé, Gaspésie Last one for tonight. It's not difficult to take photos of gannets at this colony. The difficulty is in trying to isolate one interesting scene! Birds are constantly shifting up and down, getting in the way. Here, just one bird on the edge of the colony.

Canada (Québec) Close-up portrait of a gannet. They pick up just about anything and everything for the nest. Here, a small feather. Countless times I saw a gannet picking up a small feather such as this, meticulously place it at the edge of the nest, only to have it blow away in the ever present wind.

Canada (Québec) Gannets engaging in typical gannet behaviour. From the Parc national de l'Île-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Percé, Gaspésie. Males and females frequently engage in "fencing", where they knock their beaks together with their necks outstretched. It always happens in the minute after a mate arrives at the nest.

Canada (Québec) Gannet from the Parc national de l'Île-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Percé, Gaspésie. The male and female gannets are nearly identical, but I believe this may be a male arriving at the nest. Each and every time the male lands at the nest, he launches into an attack on the female's neck. Here, we appear to see the female, right below the landing bird, exposing her neck in submission, to diffuse the male gannet's aggression.

Canada (Québec) Gannet from the Parc national de l'Île-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Percé, Gaspésie. Rather difficult to NOT get birds in flight at the colony. The more wind at the colony, the more birds take flight!

Canada (Québec) View from a tower of the gannet colony at the Parc national de l'Île-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Percé, Gaspésie. With this many birds - spend the day at the colony and you will be gifted with guano! I got hit the first day I visited straight across the back and legs (while laying down flat on the ground). The second visit I thought I was lucky, but got back to the cottage and noticed some new white spots across the back of my jacket!

Canada (Québec) Closeup of the Northern Gannet. Visited to the Bonaventure island in Gaspésie for a couple of days. This isn't a typical picture I'd usually make what with the shallow depth of field, but I'm rather liking the look.

Germany There is only one island with seabird cliffs in the North Sea, and it is Helgoland. It is also a very good spot for migrants in the fall! Here you can get pretty close to the Gannets breeding there, already quite busy at the end of March!
