Sharp-tailed Sandpipers are sometimes found this time of year in Beluga Slough area and elsewhere.  And with all the strong wind recently, maybe some other rea...

MOURNING DOVE

A MOURNING DOVE was seen near the Chamber of Commerce Building on Wednesday. Definite sighting by a birder who has lived where there are many of them, so she's certain about her ID. 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...

Birding Trip to Beluga Slough: 9-9-17

Kachemak Bay Birders enjoyed a great day of birding along Beluga Slough and scoping out over the inlet on Saturday.  We had a variety of weather during our three hours there, but overall not too many sprinkles nor too chilly. (What's a little weather when there are birds to be seen?)  One unexpected...

Birding Trip with Karl Stoltzfus: 8-26-17

This morning's trip out on the Bay with Karl Stoltzfus (Bay Excursions) was marvelous!  We woke up to heavy rain clouds and fog out over the bay, but by the time we were ready to go, the fog had broken up and we didn't have even a drop of rain the whole time, no wind, and very calm waters. Many good...

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...
