About the Festival

Discover birds in an original and fun way! 

The Côte-Nord Migratory Bird Festival

The Côte-Nord Migratory Bird Festival was created in 2009 thanks to the team at the Tadoussac Bird Observatory. Its goal? To introduce you to the ornithological wealth of our magnificent region in the fall. Indeed, in this season, the north shore of the St. Lawrence is transformed into a huge 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 North Shore, the MRC of the Haute-Côte-Nord being the region with the greatest diversity of species in Quebec, according to eBird

You can observe between 110 and 130 species of birds in less than 24 hours, including several rare boreal species! 

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!
