21 to 26 January 2004

Ron Pittaway, Willie D'Anna, Betsy Potter and I went to St. John's, Newfoundland. We were lucky having Bruce Mactavish birding with us. The winter birding is spectacular. Here we are at Cape Spear, which is the most easterly point in North America. Scroll down to see more photos and links to other pages.

The best places in St. John's to watch gulls are (1) Quidi Vidi Lake where people feed the ducks and thousands of gulls rest on the lake ice, (2) the sewer outlet in the harbour is excellent for Kumlien's Iceland Gulls and Black-headed Gulls, and (3) the dump is an experience for gull lovers.
