BELTED KINGFISHER

Nina Faust saw a BELTED KINGFISHER at the mouth of Beluga Slough at 4:30 on Monday (3-27).

One was last seen on the Christmas Bird Count, way back then...but here three months later we have another one, or maybe the same?

Birding Trip on the Spit: 3-25-17

Many binocular-wearing, bundled-up birders met at the base of the spit to go birding this afternoon. A bright, sunshiny day with not too much wind, or so we thought from that vantage point anyway. Because the Winter King Tournament had been postponed to today, there were many people out on the spit ...

Owls!

This week Dale Chorman reported hearing a BOREAL OWL and a NORTHERN SAW-WHET at his place on Fernwood, the same night. I heard a 3rd hand report of a possible juv. SNOWY OWL out mid-spit several days ago and then I got a report on Thursday from Judith James that she'd seen an owl mid-spit also. She ...

Re: Tardy Bird Report

I was told that there is a man putting food out for the pigeons every day, there in between the Chamber and Fat Olives. I don't know if this is illegal but I think it might be.

Approximately 15 souls endured the trials and tribulations of what turned out to be a perfectly wonderful day at the tractor launch area near the mouth of the Anchor River. Light winds, moderate temperatures, and broken overcast made it quite reasonable, though walking was a bit treacherous due to t...

ICELAND GULL, LAPLAND LONGSPUR, N. SHOVELERS!

(AKBirding posted 2-22-17 by Aaron Lang) The gull watching in Homer has been excellent this week. Dave Sonneborn and I spent some time picking through the flocks on the spit on the 20th and 21st and found a few interesting birds. The best location to look is at the offal outflow pipe between Land's ...
