Puffin Palooza

A Witless Bay Experience

 Ever wondered what a few million seabirds looks like? Join Birding Newfoundland on one of our Puffin Palooza day trips. Despite the name, Puffins will not be the only seabird encountered. There are also thousands of Murres (some Thick-billeds), Razorbills, Black Guillemots and Black-legged Kittiwakes. Into mid July and August, some Shearwaters ( Great, Sooty, Manx ) are possible as well.

The amazing seabird specacle is only part of the day. We will also spend some time exploring the trails for Boreal songbirds which include a number of warbler species, including, Yellow-rumped, Blackpoll, Black and White, Wilsons, Northern Waterthrush, Common Yellowthroat, American Redstart and Mourning Warbler.

Aside from the warblers we will also look for Boreal specialties such as Boreal Chickadee, Pine Grosbeak, White-winged Crossbill,Fox Sparrow, Hermit Thrush, Black-backed Woodpecker.

 This trip includes a visit to the worlds most accessible Gannet colony- 30,000 Northern Gannets nest atop a 100m, majestic sea stack, narrowly separated from the surrounding mainland by a deep chasm. This is the opportunity of a lifetime to observe Gannets reinforcing pair bonds using their extravagant mating rituals, feeding young and plunge diving.

Also present are thousands of Murres of both species, and many thousand nesting Black-legged Kittiwakes. As well, there is often a Bald Eagle or two in the area.

On the short (20 minute) walk out to the gannet colony there sometimes Horned Larks or migrating Whimbrels.

It's also possible to catch a glimpse of the increasingly rare members of the southernmost herd of Woodland Caribou or Moose on the drive to the Cape along with a variety of Newfoundland Boreal birds such as Boreal, Chickadee, Pine Grosbeak and many others!
