Birding at the Anchor River: 8-18-18

In spite of a little drizzling rain and many fishermen at the Anchor River, ten Kachemak Bay Birders and a nice visiting couple from Denmark enjoyed great birding and found 29 species! It was warm, helped by the lack of wind--warm enough when walking at least to be very comfortable. (I'm sure we'll ...

We heard an Orange-crowned Warbler with an very unusual song, but saw it and that's what it was. And identified the wren from its call which I'd never managed bef...
