Sunday, January 31, 2016 Killdeer still here!

Seward, Alaska

The KILLDEER is still here, poking through the intertidal zone at Afognak Beach. That plucky vagrant survived through torrential rains and surging surf since it was spotted for the Christmas Bird Count on January 3rd.  Thanks to Kerry who was curious enough to check and let me know.

The resident TRUMPETER SWAN family is also still here, feeding diligently. I received a report of about 30 swans in the Upper and Lower Trail Lakes area by Moose Pass. That number seems much higher than normal.

Kerry also reported an AMERICAN TREE SPARROW at Ava’s, but I was unable to refind it. Nice to know it’s around.

Happy Birding!
