Off to Gambell

My next job starts soon in Gambell, Alaska. I'll be surveying Yellow-billed Loons for the Alaska Fish and Wildlife Service. Just about every serious birder should have at least heard of Gambell, a hotspot in spring and fall for rare Asian strays with a handful of first-ABA records. It is so close to Russia, you can see the mountains on a clear day.

I'll be on the island from August 25-Oct 12 and will be in the field daily. I should be able to update this blog once in a while, so check back often to see what blows in!
