Alaska Trip ~ June 4, 2007
This morning's seawatch produced some excitement. I noticed a small group of eiders heading our way that just didn't look right for Common Eiders and announced them to our group. The others got on them and hollered out "Spectacled Eiders (!)" as two males flew by close along the shoreline. Small numbers of Red Phalaropes were also seen along the shore. Along the road east of the lake, I checked many of the Snow Buntings for a McKay's, but a McKay's X Snow Bunting hybrid was the closest that I could find.
