Fall 2022: The Birds of Newfoundland – A Deep Dive

If you enjoyed learning to identify the birds of Newfoundland in the spring, join us for our new webinar series this fall! Starting in October, this series will feature Newfoundland’s own scientists talking about their work on some of our most fascinating bird species. Join us on Tuesday nights at 7:30 pm (Newfoundland time) to take a deep dive into the biology, behaviour, and conservation of Newfoundland’s birds.

A list of topics and registration links is below. Feel free to register for one or two sessions or all 9; the choice is yours. We hope to see you there!
