I am travelling to Newfoundland this summer for whales; gannets; moose, puffins etc and am considering buying a smaller camera that doesn't need lense changes for general landscape shooting. I use a Nikon D7200 with the updated 80-400 for just about all my nature type shooting. Main subjects for the smaller camera would be family; landscapes; buildings that type of thing. Also this will enable me to hand it over to the wife for a quick shot, she does not do photography at all Any suggestions on what to buy. It can be a non-nikon brand if necessary, thanks for any input.

* I have read several reviews online and this camera has been mentioned a few times.

Sony DSC-RX100 20.2MP CMOS 3.6X 3"

I would get P&S with fixed prime or normal zoom. Ricoh GR II for same FoV as iPhone. Or Panasonic LX100. Both cameras have good IQ for P&S and not as boring on pictures as Sony P&S. IMO.

The Ricoh GRii is a great travel and casual camera. The lens (28mm equivalent) is super sharp, and the sensor doesn't have an AA filter so the IQ is amazing. High ISO isn't too bad either. It has a 35m and 47mm crop mode which is handy when you can't walk any closer. I carry mine everywhere with me and it never gets in the way. If you must have a zoom lens, the Sony RX100 mark iii or newer has a really good zoom lens with an equivalent FoV of 24-70mm.

Concerning the part that I made bold and red, I don't understand what you mean.

Could you please explain further?

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I'm in the search of P&S every time our little, pesky 8MP Lumix plays hide and seek. Can't find it again! vmad
So, I'm looking at P&S few times per year. Every time I'm checking what Sony has to offer, I'm turned off by dull images. Even with Zeiss. They are flat, characterless and not really sharp on close inspection.
On the opposite this little Lumix with fast Leica zoom on it gives very interesting images, I could see Leica character clearly, but I think we really lost it now and the only Panasonic which has Leica lens close to it is LX100. Panasonic doesn't make really small P&S with fast zooms anymore...
