Kachemak Bay Birder Carol Harding, highlights the February Bird of the Month – Rock Sandpiper. This hardy bird winters in Homer, and can be found roosting at high tide at the Homer Small Boat Harbor. Carol also describes two different processes found in birds: “irruptive” and “leucistic”. The “irruptive” process, occurs where birds, not readily seen in the Homer area during the winter, appear in great numbers, such as the increase in the number of Red Crossbills this winter and last. A “leucistic” bird is one that has white feathers, whole or in part. These birds are not albinos, as they lack the red eye. Listen to Carol as she explains these fascinating aspects of bird life.
