Birding In The Snow: Winter in Newfoundland & Labrador

111 111 people viewed this event.

Newfoundland & Labrador is renowned for its unique mix of birds – and winter is no exception. Sought-after seabirds are often found close to shore, bobbing around in historic harbours or below rugged cliffs. Regionally rare European waterfowl routinely winter alongside local North American species, providing wonderful photographic opportunities. Some years, northern finches are present in large numbers and can be found feasting on bountiful cone crops. St. John’s is well known for the huge number and rich diversity of winter gulls – some of which normally live so far north that this is “south” for them. Join our hosts Jared Clarke & Lancy Cheng to learn more about “birding in the snow” at the very edge of North America.
