Spring weather in Western Newfoundland can be pleasant though unpredictable. For your comfort, warm layers and a waterproof jacket are recommended.
May is a wonderful time to observe wildlife in Gros Morne National Park. Moose are a common sight as they wander out from the protection of the forest to roadside meadows for new shoots of springtime vegetation. Minke whales make their way back to Bonne Bay, their summer feeding grounds. If you are a birder, May is a great time to see bald eagles, osprey, terns and the many songbirds return from their southern wintering grounds.
