First day in Alaska was spent driving from Anchorage to Homer with many birding/scenic stops along the way.
The best bird highlight came late in the day when we reached Anchor Pt and were able to relocate two of the recently found Bristle-thighed Curlews. Tom Johnson and Melissa Roach also located one, which was either a third bird or one of the two seen earlier up the beach together. After sunset two birds were again seen simultaneously, each roosting with small flocks of Whimbrel.
Non-avian highlights were certainly Dall Sheep, Mountain Goats, and River Otters. Oh yeah, and the many roadside moose were cool too.
