Wednesday, June 5, 2013 Swainson's Thrushes are here!

Seward Alaska Sporadic Bird Report

I enjoyed a lovely concert this evening at Kenai Fjords National Park, Exit Glacier. 

The choir included WILSON'S, ORANGE-CROWNED, and YELLOW WARBLERS, RUBY-CROWNED KINGLETS, COMMON REDPOLLS, HERMIT THRUSHES, VARIED THRUSHES, ROBINS, and a winnowing SNIPE, accented by an unseen woodpecker drummer.  VIOLET-GREEN SWALLOWS twittered overhead.

The highlight featured at least three hidden SWAINSON'S THRUSHES soloing in turn, their ethereal voices spiraling upwards from the blooming cottonwood trees.

Happy Birding!
