One thought on “Winter List: 2013-14

  1. Jared, I hiked from Quidy Vidi village to signal hill, this morning. As I approached the top I looked down and saw a Peregrine Falcon fly in from the cliffs near Cuckold Cove! I am visiting from N.B. I didn’t see this species on your winter list!
    Thanks
