TIMELINE SERIES: February 16th 2017, I Saw 3 LIFERS On The Way To School...

Posted Friday 2nd February 2018 at 21:41 by alaskabirder
I don't think I've ever seen even just 1 lifer on the way to school, except, I miracuously saw 3 on Febuary 16th, and ALL members of Calcariidae... My NBB (non-birder brother), Brian, was driving me to school on Feb. 16th, 2017. A couple minutes from our house, there's a small experimental farming field. Often times, it's filled with Snow and Canada Geese and cranes during spring and fall migration, but this time, it was filled with something different. Under normal circumstances, it's actually void of any birds at all, except maybe for a flyover raven or eagle. In Alaska, winter is usually the worst time to see lifers, or any interesting birds for that matter. This time, however, the desolate Alaskan winter bent the rules quite far.
