Possisbly not an AMERICAN REDSTART

I got another email from David Sibley this morning and he thinks it might not have been an American Redstart he heard yesterday at the Diamond Creek Trail area, but possibly a Yellow Warbler.  He said he was "...questioning the Redstart ID.  But maybe still worth checking." If anyone comes...

Possibly not an AMERICAN REDSTART (??)

I received this from David Sibley last night: I was just outside Homer on the Diamond Ridge trail to the beach this afternoon at about 5 pm and heard an American Redstart song clearly and several times. It was near the top of the trail, in the ravine just upstream from where the trail first comes to...

Eveline Park: Birds 8, Birders 8

Michael Craig’s report from the Kachemak Bay Birders’ trip to Eveline Park on the 20th... A new record was set on this field trip: we had more birders than we had species of birds. It was simply too early. The snow was gone (barely), but it was still very brown. The weather was lovely, with only a m...

Reports as of April 15th

Earlier one was seen near the outlet of the Lake by the culvert on a tree snag. Reports of a BROWN CREEPER on Beluga La...

Victoria Winne's Early FOS Bay Birds!!

Talk about a great day to bird and be out on the bay! As we left the harbor, piped on our way by 50 or so ROCK SANDPIPERS, en route to Kasitsna Bay Lab to pick up Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies school kids, a Humpback Whale surfaced just in front of us. That augured well right there. On the retu...
