September 1 – Nome, Day 2

Most of the day I slowly wandered up Kougarok Road to Salmon Lake, about 40 miles. It was a beautiful day, gradually increasing in sun and then later, raining. Birds were mainly gulls (Glaucous, Glaucous-winged, Herring), Common Ravens, Northern Shrikes, American Tree Sparrows and a Northern Harrier.

After returning to Nome and getting gas, I spent a few hours on the lower portion of Teller Road. The highlight there was a tattler, which I’m calling a Wandering Tattler (please comment if you disagree).
