Although I have spent time looking for other rarer things since I last posted, what I have seen mostly lately is the same old, same old, including a few Pine Grosbeaks and many Common Redpolls, plus two more appearances by the Northern Goshawk in our yard, and miscellaneous moose sightings. Rather than go into more detail, following are pictures of these things.
Pine Grosbeaks and Common Redpolls (at the end of the second video, you can hear our dog barking at all the Redpolls on the porch):
Northern Goshawk (again in the half-light just before darkness on two different dates):
Two moose in the Turnagain neighborhood of Anchorage:
Moose along Northern Lights in Anchorage (I saw six (!!!) moose there that day in a 1/4 mile stretch, but only photographed these three):
Tomorrow we take our dog Caster to his first “reactive Rover” class, the primary goal being to teach him to be less antagonistic to other dogs. Should be interesting.
