      HI AK Birders,

      Last week (ending 10/29) was pretty fun for me. I was able to volunteer
      several hours at Alpenglow Ski Area (Arctic Valley Road) getting one of the
      "old" lifts ready for use this year -- and in the meantime I saw a few birds. On
      the road up (Arctic Valley Road), I saw Spruce Grouse on two occasions, and
      a female-plumaged Goshawk on another. Actually on the mountain, I observed a
      female-plumaged Goshawk on two different days -- at one time sitting on the
      chair lift cable a few feet away while I was working on a lift tower at
      eye-level! Once while riding a lift down the hill at the end of the day I saw six
      unidentified ptarmigans flying past at the base of the mountain -- too far
      away to identify.

      To round out the week, I had a Gyrfalcon fly right past my car at the south
      end of the flight line at Elmendorf AFB on 10/28. This species is listed as
      casual at this season on the Anchorage checklist (1993 edition).

      Not much has changed at my feeders. Actually, nothing has changed! Same
      old customers... Waiting for the first Pine Grosbeak and redpolls...

      Cheers,

      --Stacy
