Tuesday, February 11, 2014 Saw-whet Owl and Brambling

Seward, Alaska

Last night about 10:30 pm I tracked down the welcome sound of a NORTHERN SAW-WHET OWL calling from the south side of Mt Marathon up from Lowell Canyon. It's the first I've heard this year. Bird #60! First new 2014 species since January 23. 

This morning around 9 am, I spotted the BRAMBLING feeding with DARK-EYED JUNCOS at the corner of Second and Madison. Though there is still no snow on the ground, the colder temperature, 14ยบ, seems to have brought the birds back to the feeders.

Happy Birding!
