From April through July, thousands of common murres and many cormorants, both Brant's and pelagic, will be seen on nearby offshore rocks. On the cliffs gulls, pigeon guillemont, and pelagic cormorants maintain precarious nests. Sometimes you can see tuffed puffins. They nest in burrows along the tops of the cliffs.

Wheelchair accessible tidepools have been created here off lighthouse access road. There may be some bird activity there.
