Birding Trip to the Anchor River: 1-11-20

Postby lani » Sat Jan 25, 2020 1:42 pm

A group of Kachemak Bay Birders overcame the BRRRR! of birding in January at the Anchor River on January 11th. The day was a clear, cold, and windy but the intrepid birders persevered and found 17 great species. Both of our hoped-for eider species were seen, an American Three-toed Woodpecker ("unusual" in all seasons here) and a Ruby-crowned Kinglet--were notable sightings.

Thanks to Michelle Michaud and Jim Herbert for leading this trip. It was A Great Day To Bird!

The species seen:
Common Goldeneye
Marbled Murrelet
Common Eider
Steller’s Eider
Red-breasted Merganser
Black Scoter

White-winged Scoter

Glaucous-winged Gull
