The exact location is at the Kendall Island Bird Sanctuary:
Satellite view from the area:
For the 6 weeks I'll be joining 4 others to do nest searches, shorebird banding, among plenty of other tasks.
Some cool species that breed there are: 3 Jaeger species, Pacific & Red-throated Loons, King Eiders, Long-billed Dowitcher, Stilt Sandpiper, several other shorebird species, Snowy Owls, & Smith's Longspurs! Hopefully I'll have plenty of photos to share of all these species when I am back.
I'll be there until mid-July, so don't expect anymore blog posts. Although, Mira may feel inclined to make a post or two. After the NWT I'll be in Alberta/BC for 2 weeks, then 2 weeks of shorebird surveys on the James Bay coast - bringing me to mid/late August...
