I am back in Anchorage and can post a few more pictures from July 12. The highlight, of course, was the Eastern Phoebes, a pair feeding young in their nest.
At the same area (Hastings Creek Bridge) were a couple of juvenile birds begging loudly on rocks near the creek. I think they were young Bluethroats, although I never saw a parent sufficiently well to identify it.
Along Council Road there were also many Red-throated Loon families (as well as Common Eider families).
All in all – a beautiful, enjoyable day!
