Gannet Video – Percé Rock, L’Île Bonaventure from July 22nd

09 Aug

We are still in Summerside but I had some time this afternoon to upload my video of the gannet colony on L’Île Bonaventure from July 22nd. I wanted to show the thousands of gannets flying around and nesting on the island. It is too bad that the lovely smell does not translate well on video! 🙂

We also saw a lot of gannets diving bombing for fish but I could not get close enough to get a good video. So, here is one from the Smithsonian Channel. It is really interesting!
