#DYK Pointe-au-Père National #Wildlife Area is one of the best #shorebird watching sites in #QC?

The area features a Spartina marsh dotted with brackish ponds and shielded from the St. Lawrence by a rocky point. The Sainte-Anne River crosses the marsh from east to west, coursing through a variety of habitats, from a stretch of brackish ponds colonized by Saltmeadow Cordgrass and Smooth Cordgrass, through eelgrass beds to salt meadows populated by Carex and grasses and bordered by Sweet Gale and other shrubs. The wildlife area is part of an increasingly limited network of staging areas running the length of shorebird migratory routes. More than 120 bird species frequent the site, and approximately 15 of them also nest there. Several species at risk, such as the Peregrine Falcon, are observed on occasion.
