Overview

Our Newfoundland birding tour offers a remarkable diversity of spectacular scenery unlike anywhere else in North America. Nature abounds. Fabulous seabird colonies dot the Avalon Peninsula - thousands of Northern Gannets, Atlantic Puffins, Black-legged Kittiwakes and both murres, with lesser numbers of Razorbills and Black Guillemots, are nesting at this time. Caribou and moose are often photographable along the roadsides. Landbirds include such interesting species as Gray-cheeked Thrush, Boreal Chickadee, Blackpoll Warbler, crossbills, and Rock and Willow Ptarmigan. We spend three days in Gros Morne National Park, a stunningly beautiful area of mountains, fjords, sand dunes and wetlands.
