I added a few new birds to my trip list today (NOT year birds): Willow Ptarmigan (pair plus young), Common Eider, Black Guillemot (2 on land at the base of the point and very near), and Ruddy Turnstone (near Guillemots).
The highlight of my day, however, was a very close view along the road of a female Spectacled Eider.
One more day in Barrow – until October. Because of my flight schedule tomorrow, I probably will not be able to post about tomorrow’s birding until the next day (July 10).
285 species so far
