I spent a couple of hours wandering the Palmer area today to see if I could find any geese, such as the flock that a few days ago held a possible Ross’s Goose. I did not see any geese at all, so they may all have gone farther south.
I did see quite a few eagles, including four of them sitting on the ground in an area near the fairgrounds where I had seen a large flock of Canada Geese a couple of weeks ago.
Another young eagle sat in a tree at the Matanusksa Townsite road.
All that I saw in addition to eagles were Common Ravens, European Starlings, a Black-billed Magpie, a Black-capped Chickadee and fly-over Mallards.
Unfortunately I need to stay in the Anchorage area for a few days due to prior commitments and client work and cannot chase any rarities for now.
