December 15 – Winter Wonderland Continues

Our yard and much of Anchorage remains beautifully covered in rime ice. In addition to watching my back yard birds (includes Red-breasted Nuthatch pictured below as well as all the other usual birds), I went to Ship Creek today, where the only bird species that I found were Bald Eagle (1), Black-billed Magpie (2) and Common Raven (1). So, I took a few pictures through my front window as I drove out the boat dock area, and then took a few pictures of the scenery along the mostly frozen creek.

307 species so far (which is probably what the final total will be unless a rarity shows up somewhere in Alaska that I can go to in the next 16 days)
