For those of you who have not had the opportunity to discover Prince Edward Island, its beauty, its people, and its nature, you are in for a treat. The countryside, a diverse mix of river valleys, wood-lots, farmland, estuaries, marshes, and sand beaches, has attracted more than 330 species of birds. Eastern PEI is a rural landscape dotted with quaint, delightful harbour villages and many natural white and red sand beaches..

Forest and Stream Cottages and Country Charm B&B are nestled on 20 acres of mixed forest just west of the fishing village of Murray Harbour. The property is host to a kilometer-long, spring-fed lake whose exit stream flows into a tidal salt-water flat. The lake and wooded area around the lake is a magnet to bird life, including Belted Kingfishers, Wood Ducks, Common Mergansers, Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons, wide variety of Warblers, Finches, Woodpeckers and many song birds.
Here is a comment below from Rick Greenspun, birding guide, Sarasota FL.
Forest and Stream Cottages / Country Charm B&B offers everything a nature lover could ask for. Situated on 20 acres of mixed pine, birch & poplar, with a large private access lake, and cycling trails seconds away for your door.
Best of all is the birding. Expect to see, magnolia, yellow rumped, common yellow throat & even a mourning warbler if you are lucky. Hermit warblers, cedar waxwings, both black capped & boreal chickadees are common as well as white throated sparrows & ruby crowned kinglets. Visits by purple finches, gold finches, nuthatches & Juncos near the feeders are to be expected. Best of all you are 5 minutes from excellent wetlands & shore birding opportunities that include, whimbrels, godwits, various sandpipers, gannets, and a variety of gulls and terns. It is not uncommon to tally 40 – 50 species in one morning within a 5 mile radius. Secluded quiet & best hospitality anyone could ask for.
