June 21 – Townsend’s’ Time

I drove up Arctic Valley Road today. The usual birds were around. I got a somewhat better view of a Townsend’s Warbler than I usually get and even a partial photo.

As I was driving down the road, just after I had turned around at the foggy top, a bird darted across the road and landed on a power line – a Townsend’s Solitaire – a bird that is usually very difficult to find in Alaska. It sat for a while and even sang its gentle song and then darted off into the mist.

Other birds photographed along the road were Violet-green Swallow, American Robin, and Yellow-rumped Warbler.
