Off the coast of the town of Percé in the Gaspe peninsula lies Bonaventure Island, home to no fewer than 224 species of seabird. We took a day trip to the island, Parc national de I'Île-Bonaventure-et-du-Rocher-Percé. There are 200,000 birds nesting on the island but we had come to see the northern gannets, all 110,000 of them. This colony is the most accessible in the world and one of the few locations that allows you to observe a colony of this size at such a close range. As we approached the colony the sound was deafening. We were here during nesting (you can see a couple of the birds carrying nesting material). Gannets mate for life and once bonded reinforce this bond with head shakes, nape biting and mutual fencing, in which they stand facing each other and knock their bills together. It was an amazing site.
