Trip to the Spit: 2-8-20

It was a cold, blustery day on Saturday, but a dozen Kachemak Bay Birders braved the winds and rain out on the spit and found a ton of great birds! The flock of ROCK SANDPIPERS in the boat harbor was huge! Estimated at about 2000, but folks took photos and are possibly refining that estimate. Good n...

Trip to the Spit: 11-9-19

It Was an Extraordinary Day To Bird! That's (almost) our motto and for sure it was out on the spit today! About 16 Kachemak Bay Birders went out on the spit this afternoon--barely windy and not too cold until the end. Many great birds were found. We birded at Mud Bay, Mariner Park, between the Land...

Trip to the North Fork: 6-8-19

About 15 Kachemak Bay Birders enjoyed a great walk along the North Fork Road early this morning. Many of us who car pooled from Islands and Ocean stood and talked in the warm sunshine for a while, but as we got up to the North Fork, we found ourselves in fog. Much chillier and the light wasn't too g...

Dippers under the North Fork Bridge

These photos were taken by Tim Quinn on 4-14-19 at the bridge over the North Fork, about two miles in from the highway. This is the area we try to have a birding trip each June to see the warblers and (many) other species found in this area. We almost always see dippers there, nesting, singing and n...
