Saturday, November 19, 2011 Redwing update

Seward, Alaska

A steady stream of birders enjoyed great views of the REDWING again today. It has been active from dawn to dusk (meaning about 8:30 am to 4:30 pm).

It is most easily found resting and feeding on the Mt Ash berries along the fence line to the west of the second beach house, with good views from both the road and the beach. If it's not there, wait for it to return from a short visit to the beach where it picks through the seaweed buffet left by the receding tide.

It appears to be healthy and well fed, despite the low temperatures and bitter winds the past several days.

The wind died down this evening as the snow-laden clouds rolled in. The temp as of this post at 10 pm is 20º and snowing.

Safe travels to all who come to see this beautiful bird. It is a pleasure to have you here!

Happy Birding!
