Newfoundland and Labrador boasts millions of seabirds, from puffins, gannets and storm petrels to birds of prey like eagles, falcons and owls. Birdwatchers from around the globe visit our province!
 
Join nature enthusiast Dr. Gavan Watson (who also happens to be associate vice-president, academic (teaching and learning), and director of Memorial’s Centre for Innovation in Teaching and Learning) and Memorial alumnus Dr. Jared Clarke (B.Sc.(Hons.)’03, PhD’10), as they give provide tips and info on birdwatching in Newfoundland and Labrador.
 
Dr. Watson studied birders and their birding practices for his doctoral work. The results of this work have been reported in the popular press and in journals like Ontario Birds and Environmental Education Research. He has developed and delivered a popular experiential course on the Natural History of Toronto and has lead natural history tours across North and Central America.
 
Dr. Clarke grew up on the northeast coast of Newfoundland and was introduced to the outdoors by his grandfathers at a very young age. Always a nature enthusiast, he became interested in birds while working for a local conservation group, and soon became one of the most avid birders in the province. 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.
