description In July, 1534, Jacques Cartier journeyed along the north shore of Prince Edward Island recording his observations of the natural features of land and shore. He was obviously im- pressed, judging by his glowing reports. On several occasions he and his men went ashore "to see the trees which are wonderfully beautiful and very fragrant . . . cedars, yew-trees,* pines, white elms, ash trees, willows and others...." While on the Island, in the vicinity of Cape Orleans (Kildare), he also record- ed an abundance of birdlife, among which he noted "wood pigeons"; an "infinite number of wood pigeons," ac- cording to one translation.**
