Mega Road Trip to Far-Eastern Canada, July 11
July 11

Day 51. July 11, 2014. Friday. Fundy National Park to Pocologan, New Brunswick

Up and out of Chignecto Campground fairly early, we did two hikes in Fundy National Park. The first hike was in the woods for about 2-3 miles. We had fun chasing the sounds of warblers, only some of which we identified. We also had a nice look at a Red Fox. The second hike was about 0.3 miles on a boardwalk in a marshy area. The birds were pretty quiet, but we saw some really pretty, black-winged damselflies.

We left Fundy National Park and headed south. We stopped in Hampton at a little marsh that at first seemed pretty bleak, but we ended up chasing more warblers and having a good time. The last stop was a park on the south side of Saint John with forest and salt marsh. We walked some in the woods, checked some tide pools in the Bay of Fundy, and walked on a boardwalk in a salt marsh. We were looking for more Nelson's Sparrows, but instead found Savannah Sparrows singing the wrong song (something interesting is going on here).

We continued south and stopped in Pocologan, a little town on the edge of the sea. The hotel is a long line of rooms, each with a nice view of the water and a back porch to sit out and enjoy the scenery (and the bugs). Out on the porch, I spotted Common Eider, White-winged Scoter, Black Scoter, and Bald Eagle in the bay.
