Tufted Saxifrage is a small perennial that grow in thick mats on the tundra. This photo was taken by Dave Milsom at L’Anse Amour just a few days ago, during our Newfoundland and Labrador trip. “Saxifraga” is the Latin word for “rock breaker”.

Audubon Nature Odysseys is currently on an expedition to Newfoundland and Labrador. Just the other day we visited Witless Bay, which is famous for its spectacular birding and whale watching. While there, our expedition leader Dave Milsom photographed this adorable pair: a Great Black-backed Gull and chick. Stay tuned for more photos from this wonderful province.

The  Agami Heron is a reclusive species and is rarely seen, preferring the shade and overhanging vegetation. That’s why we were so enthralled by this gorgeous photograph by Corey Finger on the excellent birding blog 10,000 Birds. This was taken during a 2009 visit to the Cuero y Salado Wildlife Refuge, a major wetland and mangrove lagoon in Honduras. Audubon Nature Odysseys will pay a visit here in February 2014 as part of our expedition to Honduras, Guatemala and Belize.
