"A few years ago I took two gull workshops on gull identification that Dave offered, introductory and intermediate. They involved both classroom and field instruction. I was impressed with Dave’s knowledge and his approach to gulls which focused on ageing as a first approach to identification followed by details of other characteristics. I particularly enjoyed the time in the field with Dave, he was very attentive to the varied needs of the participants and helped us go through his methodology. He was good at coaching us towards a correct identification when we had initially made an incorrect one. My ability to identify gulls was greatly improved by his instruction. I would highly recommend his instruction and field trips to anyone who wants to improve their bird identification abilities".

Birding Newfoundland

" Several years ago I got my start in birding when I availed of Dave Brown’s introductory course on Newfoundland songbirds. His excellent photos opened my eyes to the possibilities and his ability to identify birds by song and then find them seemed magical. His seminars and field trips, most especially the one to the Codroy Valley, provided an amazing initiation to the joys of birding. I heartily recommend Dave Brown’s birding guide services."
