Winter List

Newfoundland Winter Bird List (Cumulative)

The following table contains a list of 252 species that have been recorded in Newfoundland during the “official” winter period (December – February). Most Canadian provinces have been keeping winter lists for a number of years, and I began doing so for Newfoundland (Labrador excluded) in 2006-2007.
