Friday, August 15, 2015 Northern Water Thrush yard bird

Seward, Alaska

Rain and rough seas all this week since the Seward Silver Salmon Derby started on Saturday, August 9th. This morning when it was only moderately raining, I heard a very loud, "CHIP!" in my yard. I grabbed my camera and tried to get a photo of the mystery bird skulking in the wet alder leaves.

Blurry though it was, Buzz identified the mystery bird as a NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH. I looked so hard for this warbler in the spring at the wetlands by the Resurrection River bridge at Exit Glacier. I could hear it but never saw it. It sure was nice to have one delivered to my yard!

Happy Birding!
