My friend Karl Gerstenberger and I travelled to Bonaventure Island, Quebec in mid-July 2010, to photograph Northern Gannets. This gannetry is the largest colony in North America, approximately 120,000 birds. The colony itself is at the top of a large cliff on the eastern end of the island. Bonaventure Island is 7 km east of the village of Percé on the eastern end of the Gaspé Peninsula of Quebec. The name Percé refers to the large pierced rock that dominates the seascape just offshore, and pointing toward Bonaventure Island.
This gallery is a collection of photos mainly of the gannets, but also of the Percé area.
