32 Birder's Guide to Travel | March 2016 Birding Newfoundland A growing number of birders visit New- foundland in winter, when many other tour- ists steer clear. That's because the island is known for its winter bird specialties, most of which can be found in and around St. John's. Sought-after seabirds such as Dovekie and Thick-billed Murre are often found feeding close to shore in winter. Ocean-loving ducks such as Common Eider, Long-tailed Duck, and all three species of North American scoter can be found along the coast. Euro- pean waterfowl such as Tufted Duck, Eur- asian Wigeon, and Eurasian Green-winged ("Common") Teal routinely winter alongside more local species and provide excellent opportunities for photography.
