November 3 – Barrow Day 1

A windy day with few birds – mostly Glaucous Gulls (sometimes looking really white and Ivory-Gull-like), plus a few ravens, redpolls, and eiders (mostly Common) and one Short-tailed Shearwater. I birded with John Puschock (leader), Brandon Reo and Christian Hagenlocher. The main or possibly the only goal for most of us in Barrow is Ivory Gull. We will be looking again for it tomorrow.


Meanwhile, to amuse himself and us, John did a couple of snow-angels and a dirt-angel, which I video-recorded but will probably not be able to download on the blog until I have a faster wifi signal. A few of us also had our photos taken by a local landmark.


302 species so far
