A beautiful spot to visit sandpipers and other shorebirds is in the Dorchester area at Johnson’s Mills.

The Nature Conservancy of Canada operates a wonderfully informative interpretive centre which spotlights birds in the area and in particular the semipalmated sandpiper.

The tiny bird doubles its body weight feeding on shrimp and other sea life in the upper Bay of Fundy during mid-summer every year on its way from the Arctic to South America.
