  • Ring-billed gull, a natural recycler

    Many Ring-billed gulls.

    Although it loves earthworms, insects, small mammals and fish, this opportunist feeds on almost any type of household garbage!

    Ring-billed gulls nest in groups of hundreds and even thousands of individuals, often on building rooftops.

    Although their average lifespan is 10 to 15 years, the oldest can live to the ripe old age of 27.

  • Double-crested cormorant, wings extended

    Double-crested cormorant with its wings outstretched

    After fishing, this big black bird stays motionless, its wings outstretched… to dry its feathers! Unlike the majority of diving birds, its plumage is not completely watertight.

    The double-breasted cormorant is often seen running on the water as it prepares to take flight.

    In Carleton-sur-Mer, it cohabits with a great many seagulls and great blue herons.
