I am guessing it is a Sharp-Shinned Hawk, based on your estimated size, and the banding on the wing. But I'm not 100% confident.  (reply...)

1 days ago Lessa made the following comment on the observation of maybe ruby ? posted on June 27, 2015:
Ruby-throated are the only hummingbird in eastern North America. However most bird guides don't have thier range in Newfoundland, so it is a rare sighting... the checklist of the birds of NL lists it as an "uncommon (breeder)". If you've seen it before, then the micro climate and flowers in your yard might be a pocket of habitat for this species.  (reply...)

Black Guillemot is our most common Seabird, and the only one that is totally resident and the one most wary. Except Seagulls, which you could approach anytime. (reply...)
