Kachemak Bay Birders had a bit 'o the luck of the Irish today, one day early. With 100% precipitation predicted, hardly any rain fell upon them as they were birding out on the Spit. (The rest of the day it poured!) Also the luck of finding 27 species.
Seemed like spring with Song Sparrows singing in many location--such a cheerful, uplifting song they have. Very enjoyable up-close viewing of the Rosy-Finches, especially in the campground by the Seafarer's Memorial. Many Rock Sandpipers were seen at Mud Bay and in the Harbor, but careful scrutiny did not reveal a single Dunlin.
A big thanks to Michael Craig for leading our trip. It was a Great Day to Bird!!
The species we saw:
GRAY-CROWNED ROSY FINCH
