      Upper Cook Inlet Bird Report
      16 August 2005

      This is the Upper Cook Inlet Bird Report, sponsored by the Anchorage
      Audubon Society. This report was updated on Tuesday evening, 16
      August 2005.

      A male Yellow-headed Blackbird was seen today, the 16th, at Potter
      Marsh. It was seen at the small pull-off between the large paved
      pull-out and the south end of the marsh. This individual still has a
      distinctive yellow head, so if it stays at the marsh it should be
      readily visible. The Yellow-headed Blackbird is unusual in Alaska and
      the Anchorage area, but has been recorded several times locally in
      recent years.

      In other news, this is the time when people start seeing mixed-species
      flocks of songbirds moving through the area. One such flock in the
      City View area on the 13th had Black-capped Chickadees, Red-breasted
      Nuthatches, a Brown Creeper, and an Orange-crowned Warbler.
      Typically, these flocks of are noisy, actively feeding birds, and they
      may sweep through a yard quickly and then move on to the next.

      Please leave your observations at the end of this message, and be sure
      to include your date, name, telephone number and location. Thank you.
