During my recent trip to St John's, Newfoundland (YYT), I was able to go on a tour and view whales and seabirds. We drifted by an island that has one of the largest bird populations in North America, and believe me, there were MILLIONS of them. Puffins, seagulls, common murres (you'll see the photo with thousands of them facing towards the rocks), and others. It was certainly a sight to behold. One photo shows an observer in a green tent who sits and "watches" the birds all day long for science....how fun is that??? I kept wondering with all the bird "condos" on the sides of the hills, how they ever found where they lived. Ahhhh, the mysteries of wildlife. ;-)
