About 15 Kachemak Bay Birders enjoyed a great walk along the North Fork Road early this morning. Many of us who car pooled from Islands and Ocean stood and talked in the warm sunshine for a while, but as we got up to the North Fork, we found ourselves in fog. Much chillier and the light wasn't too great but we found many great birds anyway, birding by ear in the fog works
Very enjoyable hearing several NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH near the bridge and a few got to see one. Fun watching the AMERICAN DIPPER there, too. We noticed that we didn't hear any snipe, no winnowing or their usual ground call either. Also missing were flycatchers, but just a little early perhaps up there. But we found a goodly number of species:
SANDHILL CRANES (heard)
NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH (seen and heard)
A big thanks to our trip leaders, Lori Paulsrud and Gary Lyon. It was indeed, and as always, A Great Day to Bird!
P.S. Don't forget we have another trip next Sunday (16th) to Eagle Lake and the Jaeger Bog. I'll send an announcement Monday or look on our website.
