In September, we explored the birds of the tropical paradise islands of Trinidad and Tobago with Faraaz Abdool. This month we head north all the way to the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Jared Clarke, expert birder, will entice us to this boreal paradise with a tour of his home province and the many birds that inhabit it. Don’t miss it!
Jared will Zoom in for this presentation at 7:00 PM Thursday, November 11, 2021, whether we meet in person or not. We will keep you posted by email.

Birds of Newfoundland & Labrador: Perched on the Edge of North America presented by Jared Clarke
Located at the edge of North America, Newfoundland & Labrador is home to a unique mix of birdlife. Join Jared Clarke to learn more about the diversity of species that might be found there – Atlantic Puffin, Northern Gannet, Boreal Chickadee, Mourning Warbler, Willow Ptarmigan … and so many more! From some of the world’s most spectacular (and accessible) seabird colonies to lush boreal forests; subarctic tundra to tranquil lakes and wetlands – Canada’s easternmost province is a wonderful birding destination.
Jared Clarke grew up on the northeast coast of Newfoundland and was introduced to the outdoors at a very young age, mostly by his grandfathers. Always a nature enthusiast, he became interested in birds while working for a local conservation group. Jared soon became one of the most avid birders in the province. Despite his “official” training as a health researcher (Ph.D. Medicine), his love of nature and sharing it with others increasingly led him astray. He currently runs a small bird and nature tour business, called Bird•The•Rock, and routinely leads trips at home and abroad for various tour companies.
