Bird Watching

Whatever the season you visit Kejimkujik a few of our spectacular bird species are likely to be in attendance. Visit our wildlife section to learn more about the park's birds.

Spring

Our early migrants such as waterbirds, blackbirds, sparrows and the American robin tend to arrive here in late March and early April. It's not until about May 20 that warblers and other insect-eating birds reach their peak numbers. This is an excellent time of year to watch or photograph birds. By mid-June all of our summer residents are present.

Summer

Watch carefully for broods of ruffed grouse along roadsides, or for fluffy flotillas of black ducks and common mergansers riding the waves of a lake or river.

Fall

The peak of fall migration occurs during the first two weeks of September, but mixed flocks of warblers are seen into early October.
