Birding in Newfoundland Expands
Numerous Flicker sites showcase the many professional-class photos of birds of Newfoundland. The number of blogs recounting trips, in depth analysis and identification of birds, Newfoundland birding records and a historical perspective add to the daily enjoyment of birding in the province. While Dave Brown launched the first NL birding blog in 2010, he has been joined by six additional bloggers. (I have provided links to all of the Flicker sites and blogs that I know of.) We have some wonderfully adept birders in the area with international recognition and some promising "up-starts" who will keep the quest alive for many years ahead.
It has been pretty special to have been able to watch this expansion of interest in birding for such a short time. What will the next three years bring? Hopefully, lots more birds and birders to find them.
