9783AAS Seward field trip summary
- Feb 23, 2014Seward was again very good to our Anchorage Audubon field trip group
A big thank you to the local experts Jim Tasha and Sarah who helped us
out so much and to the SeaLife Center which hosted our lunch time
intermission with great presentations by Tasha and Sarah.
The weather was calm all day allowing us to do some very pleasant sea
watching. Notably absent were most loons. A single Common Loon and
Pacific Loon were seen toward the end of the day. Sea ducks were also
rather sparse in number compared to other years, but what was lacking on
the water was made up for by great views of a Brambling and rather
tedious views of a White-throated Sparrow!
Below is a list of the birds seen by anyone and everyone on that fine
day (please let me know if I am missing something):
There were tantalizing but inconclusive views by a few folks, in the
fading light of the day, of what could have been the Swamp Sparrow back
at Ava's feeders.
Hooded Merganser (male and female)
American Tree Sparrow
37 total species...I am sure I am missing something
