After a hiatus, I've resurrected this blog! Here you'll find photos of birds, ramblings about birding trips and photos of other things I find interesting along the way.

We have been monitoring 2 Red-throated Loon nests, and one has a pretty cooperative bird. I was able to sneak up on one of the birds and managed a series of 150+ pictures of this gorgeous bird. Here is a quick edit of one of them.
Breeding Red-throated Loon in evening light. I'm quite happy with this one.
Still lots of shorebird chicks hatching and running around, trying to avoid Jaegers (I saw 20+ Long-tailed Jaegers on South Plot today). I also got attacked by a female Rock Ptarmigan that I almost stepped on whilst she was incubating her 10 eggs. She made a flight for my face, luckily I dodged the attempt.
Happy 4th of July! Drink a beer for me if you are celebrating today. I know I would be.
