May 21 – Kenai Area

Because I arrived just before midnight in Anchorage just now and because I am leaving tomorrow morning for St. Paul, this will be a short post.

I went on two field trips this morning and explored a few areas this afternoon in the Kenai/Soldotna area. Both field trips were north of Kenai and north of Nikisi, and were mostly woodland walks. My new birds for the day were Northern Waterthrush and Swainson’s Thrush (no picture yet).

I want to thank four people especially who made the festival possible and special: Connie & Ken Tarbox and Bev and George Kirsch. Their work on hospitality, planning, field-trip leading and I am sure many other things that I know nothing about is much appreciated by me and I am sure by others who attended the festival.
