Semipalmated Plover (25) (Charadrius semipalmatus) User: Stephane  (See all photos - 26) (Comments - 13)
Canada (Québec) Semipalmated Plover (Juvenile) Sainte-Martine, Quebec From the bird identification app I use, it seems that one of the identifying marks for a juvenile is the "scaling" that can be seen in the feathers.

Semipalmated Sandpiper (13) (Calidris pusilla) User: Stephane  (See all photos - 26) (Comments - 13)
Canada (Québec) Semipalmated Sandpiper Sainte-Martine, Quebec I was busy taking pictures and it took me an embarrassingly long time to realize that there were two types of little shore birds in front of me. The Least Sandpipers with their darker feathers and yellowish legs, and these, paler feathers and darker legs. An image taken a few seconds earlier (though not critically sharp), shows a slight webbing between the toes.

Canada (Québec) Least Sandpiper Sainte-Martine, Quebec I just like the flow of rushing water and colorful reflections around the sandpiper.

Canada (Québec) Least Sandpiper Sainte-Martine, Quebec Only the second time visiting Sainte-Martine (the first time being a week before). Turns out it's an amazing place to view shorebirds relatively close to home. This particular photo was taken from about 4.8m (at 825mm focal length). There were several of these small birds foraging in the river, along with larger yellowlegs, semipalmated plovers, semipalmated sandpipers, a heron and several ducks.

Canada (Québec) Greater Yellowlegs Sainte-Martine, Quebec ...at least, I think it's a greater yellowlegs! Turns out that identification is pretty darned difficult, and maybe someone here will be able to more positively figure this one out. First, I have very little reference for this individual's relative size, this being my first time seeing any number of yellowlegs. However, I've settled on "greater" due to the bill length, the bill's color and the length of the primary feathers relative to the tail. Small indications I gathered off a website (https://www.thespruce.com/greater-or-lesser-yellowlegs-386349).

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!
