Jared Clarke is a native Newfoundlander and was introduced to the outdoors at a very young age, mostly by his grandfathers. Always a nature enthusiast, he became interested in birds while working for a local conservation group and soon became one of the most avid birders in the province. He currently runs a small bird and nature tour business, called “BirdTheRock”, and routinely leads trips at home and abroad for various tour companies. You can follow his adventures at www.birdtherock.com.
Lancy Cheng is a biologist, a polar guide in the Arctic and Antarctica, an outdoor enthusiast, a nature lover and a bird nerd. He loves everything with feathers, especially gulls. With this passion, he chose to live in St. John’s, Newfoundland, the “Capital of Kumlien’s gull” in North America. He spends most of my time in the woods, by the lake or on the beach, looking for and studying birds. If not out birding, he says he would stay home with his little girl, Vega. Yes, she is a cat, and, yes, her name is from Vega gull.
