Northern Gannet (Morus bassanus) User: Stephane  (See all photos - 26)
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!

While visiting a gift shop in Percé (named Bon Secours, where a very nice lady helped pick out some beautiful gifts!) I came across an 80 page guide on Gannets published by the ornithological society of Gaspésie. While i witnessed all these details, a learned a lot of the why after the fact by reading the guide.
