Refuge faunique Marguerite d'Youville marsh

Located on Île Saint-Bernard, in Châteauguay, this wildlife preserve, rich in wetlands, is a paradise for many wildlife species.

  • Great blue heron, a patient fisherman

    Great blue heron on the shore.

    These large, long-legged wading birds can measure more than 1 m. They fly with slow, majestic wing beats.

    Great blue herons nest in colonies in treetops but hunt and fish alone, moving patiently in the shallow, marshy waters near shore.

    The approaches to the River shelter many other species of the same family, like the black-crowned night heron, great egret and least bittern.
