Eyes Right - Kittiwakes - Cape St. Mary's

On the southwestern tip of the Avalon Peninsula is one of the most spectacular seabird colonies in the western world. Extending along 125 ft. cliffs for more than 3 miles are the nesting sites of several species of seabirds. In addition to gannets, thick-billed murres, razerbill murres, and black guillemots, these steep mainland cliffs are the breeding territory of 10,000 nesting pairs of kittiwakes.
