The Nova Scotia Bird Society (NSBS) has been a focus for birders in the province for over 65 years. Serving about 600 members, it has much to offer anyone interested in wild birds.

This region of the province has become so notable for its abundant and frequently rare birdlife that the Southwest chapter of NSBS was formed in 2018.

Cape Forchu is described as a “vagrant hotspot” by Society member Alix d’Entremont. The Society has a helpful guide for those interested in birding in the province.

Here’s a good blog entry by birder Mark Dennis about Cape Forchu.

Tony and Angie Millard are both NSBS directors and live half a mile from the Cape Cottage. If you have questions about birding locally, you can reach them by email.
