I love going for a boat ride. It gives me a chance to get a rare picture like this: A Gannet diving for food. I often see gannets circling about, much like the Eagles do, looking for food from up high. Then suddenly, they dive down like an arrow, plunge into the water and often come back up with a fish. Mind you, you will not see the fish, just a lump in their throat where they swallowed it underwater.
You have to come to Atlantic Canada to see the ATLANTIC Gannet. Else you need to go across the pond and look on the European coast. I have also heard that gannets migrate as far south as Florida for the winter.
Start by looking high above for a circling bird with black wing tips. If you see a gannet closer, you might pick up on the golden head. Be patient – they are! Eventually you will see one dive.
So come to the Prince Edward Island Shores and look for hunting gannets.
