Sixteen days of holidays start tomorrow. The Avalon Peninsula is a good place to be birding in December though it doesn't have to be this winter-like! There will be robin flocks to go through for Redwings. Gulls to check at Quidi Vidi Lake for the Yellow-legged Gull and as of yet undiscovered rarities, hopefully including a Slaty-backed Gull. Cape Spear will be good for seabirds. Lingering warblers will be very few with this cold weather but feeder sparrows and allies could include some nice rarities.
Let the birding begin!
