& Machias Seal Island - Machais Seal Island is located
in the lower Bay of Fundy,
approximately ten miles west of Grand Manan Island. The island is barely
a mile long at low tide, and a few hundred feet wide. A lighthouse is located
there and in the non-nesting season the only occupants on the island are
the two lighthouse keepers. The lighthouse has been maintained by the Canadian
Coast Guard for over 100 years. This is disputed territory between the
US and Canada.

Manan Island - Grand Manan is a paradise for bird-watchers.
Puffins and Arctic terns,
marsh-dwelling cranes and heron, magnificent eagles and peregrine falcons
-- the island boasts hundreds of species. See also Grand
Manan Tourim - site includes a checklist of Grand Manan birds.
New Brunswick IBAs - This is a working list and map of
potential Important Bird
Areas in New Brunswick. The process of identifying IBAs in this region
is by no means complete. Additional sites that qualify as IBAs will likely
be identified and likewise, some of the sites mapped may not qualify as
IBAs once a thorough evaluation is completed. Once a site has been formally
identified as an IBA the site name is linked to a one-page site summary.
Includes details about:
Restigouche River Estuary
Kouchibouguac National Park
Sand Spits and Barrier Islands
Waterfowl Park - The Sackville Waterfowl Park
is home to
many species of wildlife.
The Park is located near the Tantramar Marshes. The Park is a partnership
between the Canadian Wildlife Service and Ducks Unlimited.

County, on the northern tip of New Brunswick, is one of the more interesting
areas in the province for birders. In part, this is because the ranges
of many northern and southern species overlap here.
Island, New Brunswick - Eastport is know as the world's
second largest whirlpool
and is an internationally recognized feeding and staging area for tens
of thousands of small gulls in summer and fall and equal numbers of Black-legged
Kittiwakes in winter.
Drives Along New Brunswick's Fundy Coast - From old
Acadia to Grand Manan Island,
the southern shore of New Brunswick offers quiet villages, great scenery
and birding, parks, historic treasures, and the highest tides in the world.
of Fundy, New Brunswick-Nova Scotia, Canada, Hemispheric
Point, New Brunswick (40 km south of the City of Moncton,
Lagoon and River Estuary, New Brunswick (50 km
northeast of the city of
Chatham in Northumberland County) - Information Sheet on Ramsar Wetlands.
Daly Point Reserve - comprised of 40 ha of saltmarsh and
upland. The park consist of 6 km of trails running through more than 100
acres of saltmarsh, old fields, and mixted forest. Special attractions
include the thousands of Canada Geese who arrive on their migratory voyage
in the fall and the many different species of shorebirds who feed on the
invertebrate communities located on the wide tidal flats.
Swifts in Frederickton - A quaint tradition in some
families was telling children that it was time for them to go to bed when
the chimney swifts came in to roost for the night. Unfortunately, many
of the chimneys that formally housed chimney swifts have been torn down
or sealed up. However, there a few exceptions, including the Incutech Building
Chimney on the University of New Brunswick campus. The chimney at the Incutech
Building has served as a roosting site for swifts for many years.
