About the Festival

Discover birds in an original and fun way! 

The Côte-Nord Migratory Bird Festival has been created in 2009 thanks to the team at the Tadoussac Bird Observatory. Its goal? To introduce the ornithological wealth of our magnificent region in the fall. Indeed, during this season, the north shore of the St. Lawrence becomes a major migration corridor. It is one of the most important in the North-East of North America. It is therefore a key period for bird watching on the Côte-Nord, Haute-Côte-Nord MRC being the region with the greatest diversity of species in Quebec, according to eBird

Finally, all the migratory follow-ups of the Tadoussac Bird Observatory are in operation. You will be able to familiarize yourself with high-level scientific work and ask all your questions!
