This blog was going to be the place where I was going to share my photos from the adventures my husband had while travelling the globe. With the COVID-19 restrictions, we have not been able to travel outside of our “bubble". We are fortunate enough that in our “bubble” we have two national parks: Kouchibouguac National Park and Fundy National Park. Both parks are only an hour away from our home. Here are some of the images of wildlife and landscape I captured during the period I call COVID time.
Ce blog devait être l'endroit où j'allais partager mes photos des aventures de mon mari lors de ses voyages autour du monde. Avec les restrictions du COVID-19, nous n'avons pas pu voyager en dehors de notre "bulle". Nous avons la chance d'avoir deux parcs nationaux dans notre " bulle " : le parc national de Kouchibouguac et le parc national de Fundy. Ces deux parcs ne sont qu'à une heure de route de chez nous. Voici quelques-unes des images de la faune et du paysage que j'ai capturées pendant la période que j'appelle le temps du COVID.
Sandpipers are commonly known as shorebirds or waders and are from the family Scolopacidae. Their scientific name is Actitis hypoleucos. The common sandpiper are migrators and they frequently travel the same route each year. The sandpipers that visit the Bay of Fundy in Johnson Mills (8 Kilometres from Dorchester, NB) are coming from the Canadian Arctic on their way to South America where they will spend the winter months. They usually arrive the later part of July and will be seen until late August. Each year there are well over 200,000 that land on the Bay of Fundy. The individuals that monitor their arrival have noted that each year there seems to be less that make the trip. However, they are not sure the reason why.
