« J’aime les oiseaux-ho-ho-ho!! » (de Yann Perreau)

Open your eyes and ears!!! The forest moves to the heartbeat of the songs of our feathered friends. Take time to listen and you’ll know that you are never alone in the woods.
The Regional Park Devil’s Mountain is home to several ecosystems found in Québec’s forest landscape. This natural site offers a remarkable diversity of birds for observation with over 100 species. Birds are most active in the spring during mating and nesting season. Although the majority of species are just passing through, some weather the cold and stay all year round.
