10330Brewer's Sparrow (Timberline) and Yellow-billed Loon - Nuiqsut
- Aug 22, 2014
Noteworthy birds from Nuiqsut between August 18-21 were 5 juvenile Brewer's Sparrows seen at the Nuiqsut Airport. A few of these birds were seen at very close range within 2-3 feet as they were feeding on mosquitoes attracted to me. One bird hopped up on my knee as I was sitting on steps before flying off to get a mosquito.
Two yellow-billed loons and one common loon were also seen.
