SACKVILLE, N.B. – Birds from far and wide come to nest in Sackville’s Waterfowl Park, making it a popular stop for visitors and avid birders. The Town of Sackville is pleased to be launching two initiatives for bird lovers. The first is the second annual Waterfowl Park Photo Competition, the second is the creation of an updated Waterfowl Park bird sighting page on the Town’s website.

Have you ever taken a stunning photo of Sackville’s Waterfowl Park? Would like to it share with the world? Now is your time to shine. The Town of Sackville is hosting a Waterfowl Park photo contest until Sept. 12. There are three categories in which you can enter your photos; ages 10 and under, 18 and under, and adult. Winners will not only receive a fabulous gift pack from the Town, but will also have the chance to see their photos widely distributed in promotional materials. Photos can be of birds, other animals, or just vistas in the Park. They should be submitted to vistor@sackville.com, and submitters should include their name and age, and if it’s a photo of a bird, the species of bird (if it is known).

The town has also created a page on their website to keep track of bird’s currently seen in the park, updating visitors on what they should look for. The next time you go for a stroll through the park, make sure to visit sackville.com/bird-sightings beforehand. New sightings are added daily, and the list is completely revised every Monday with only birds seen the Sunday before. Not only do our Waterfowl guides play a role in updating this list, but so can you - simply email visitor@sackville.com to let them know what you’ve seen in the park so they may add it to the list.
