Currently sitting in the Minneapolis airport with the lovely and talented Carolyn Sedgwick on our journey to Alaska.
Not a birding trip per se, we'll be in and around Homer for a wedding this weekend. The bride and groom, and likely many of the guests, are birders themselves so birding is very much in the cards.
It's the first trip to AK for the both of us so life birds are guaranteed. At the top of the wish list? Aleutian Tern, Kittlitz's Murrelet, Fork-tailed Storm-petrel, Steller's Eider, Rock Sandpiper and a few more. Some are more likely than others. Perhaps an Asian vagrant will present itself. Just the scenery itself is sure to be awe inspiring.
Will check in here if cell coverage or Internet availability allows.
