One of the many wonderful things about Anchorage is that everywhere along the inlet in summer there are Sandhill Cranes. Right now in addition to adult cranes, there are a few Sandhill Crane colts. Today I saw and photographed them at Campbell Creek Estuary Natural Area and at Carr Gottstein park at close to a very high tide, which brought a few of the cranes a bit closer.
The other most obvious birds today at the Campbell Creek Estuary Natural Area were Lincoln’s Sparrows, singing and scolding.
My final bird for my wandering today was a Red-breasted Nuthatch, either a scruffy adult or a youngster.
