Anchor River Trip 2-25-17

Postby lani » Sat Feb 25, 2017 6:39 pm

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 the ice. The following species were noted today:


Pacific Loon
Common Loon
(a possible, though not confirmed) Red-throated Loon
Pelagic Cormorant
Common Eider
Steller's Eider
Black Scoter
White-winged Scoter
Surf Scoter
Harlequin Duck
Long-tailed Duck
Bufflehead
Bald Eagle
Glaucous-winged Gull
Common Murre
Pigeon Guillemot
Marbled Murrelet
Black-billed Magpie
Northwestern Crow
Snow Bunting
Common Redpoll


20 species in all (maybe 21). Not bad for a winter's day.

PS If any of the trip participants remember seeing any other species, please add them to the list.
