Dunlins are here!
- Monday afternoon I was birding out on the mudflats just off the end of the airport in seward. it was a very low tide, and i spotted 3 dunlins feeding far out on the mud flats near the rock jetty. they were still in their winter plumage.
we also spotted 4 rock sandpipers and one black legged kittiwake.
back at my feeders i counted 112 Redpoles!Pine Siskins,Boreal chickadees,black cappped and chestnut backed chickadee, Hairy woodpecker,downey woodpecker, redbreasted nuthatches, and 8 white winged crossbills.
spring is on its way! i can hardly wait to see the cranes over head!
