Birding Trip to the Spit: 2-10-18

A few Kachemak Bay Birders birded the Spit on Saturday morning and found many species and that the weather prediction was wrong--it was warm and no precipitation and even the wind at the end of the spit was gentle and short-lived.

TOWNSEND'S WARBLER

From Tami Reiser (11-21-17)

My friend has a late Townsends Warbler at her suet block, flew in with a bunch of Siskins.  Bear Creek area.

We wish he would stick around for the Christmas Bird Count!

MOURNING DOVE

Please let me know or post if anyone else sees it. We'd love to hear. A group of 60+ ROCK DOVES are there mid-day in t...
