HALIFAX – Dozens of bird enthusiasts clamored to Eastern Passage, N.S. to catch a bird not normally seen on this side of the Atlantic Ocean.
The Eurasian Kestrel is normally found in Europe, but one bird has made its way across the Atlantic Ocean and has been spotted near Hartlen Point.
“It’s very exciting. I think it’s the second [one] that’s ever been sighted in Nova Scotia,” said Joshua Donham, a member of the Nova Scotia Bird Society.
The last time an Eurasian Kestrel was spotted in Nova Scotia was more than 25 years ago, according to Donham.
