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 ...

Wynn Nature Center Bird Walk: 6-30-18

Great bird walk this morning at the Wynn Nature Center. Lovely, sunny morning with no rain! Good songs and interesting puzzles for a few. 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...

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. Can't ask for more than that! We found a small group of ROCK SANDPIPE...
