Nova Scotia & Newfoundland: Birding with a Camera® (BwC)

Tour Overview:

What’s the best thing about Canada? Ice hockey? Tim Horton’s? No - the wildlife and the wonderful sense of wilderness! With relatively few people, excellent infrastructure, and massive tracks of pristine habitat, Canada is an ecotourism dream. Nova Scotia and Newfoundland are particularly inviting, and our 11-day departure will visit many beautiful locations across the two regions. While we will seek loons, eagles, shorebirds, and waterfowl, we’ll devote special time to songbirds and seabirds. Warblers, flycatchers, and vireos drip from trees like overnight dew, and we’ll bear witness to tens of thousands of gannets, hundreds of thousands of puffins, and millions of murres at breathtaking breeding colonies. The tiny coastal towns are cute, the people are warm and friendly, the lighthouses are picturesque, and the entire region feels like something out of fairy tale. Simply put, the birding experience is unparalleled outside of Alaska. Throw in copious amounts of seafood and poutine and you might never want to go home!
