Blog Update

As the summer comes to a close and a new season begins, I have been thinking about how to make my web site better. It is a growing venture and I have a lot of ideas.

Over the last three months, I have travelled all over the Avalon Peninsula, several times. During this time I developed a new "feel" for this province and a true appreciation of its history and its many wonders. I have photographed much of it and many birds along the way.

I still have over 50 species of birds to share. You may have noticed that I have developed a linking page called "Bird Photo Listing." I have created an alphabetical listing of the bird postings. (The page is still under development, but it is coming along nicely.) This page will be useful if you are looking for a specific bird and don't have the time to browse the monthly posting list on the right side of the page.

You may note that I have added a few new gadgets to the site to bring you more bird information. These are for trial only. If you have any suggestions about how you think I can enhance my blog, please submit a comment.

Among the gadgets added are several useful to local birders. The weather is always a key factor in bird watching. For that reason I have linked to the Weather Network. Fog is also a major factor when travelling to the shores for birding. To help with that challenge, I have added a link to the Newfoundland Road Cams that can show the weather conditions across the province. If shorebirds are on your "to do" list, it is helpful to know the tide schedule in the area you plan to bird. You may also notice that I have added a link to Newfoundland Tide information. I hope these little tools will enhance your birding experience. For my international visitors, I have provided the Bablefish Translator to help with any unfamiliar words.

Thank you for visiting my site and please do come back to watch it grow and to make suggestions. I am very happy to learn visitors from all around the world are finding my sight. Welcome!
