NOME BIRDING YEAR-ROUND
By Lynn Barber
Anchorage Audubon’s February program will be a fabulous opportunity for anyone who has ever wanted to visit the Birding Gold Mine of Nome, Alaska. Lynn Barber made an incredible 11 birding trips to Nome during 2018, and she’ll share her photos of the birds, mammals and scenery with us on February 21.
As the seasons unfolded she drove along the three main roads that lead out of Nome to Council, the Kougarok River and Teller. She documented the arrivals and departures of migrant, breeding and wintering birds, including McKay’s and Snow Buntings, huge flocks of geese and ducks in summer, and mixed gull flocks in early winter. She listened to and photographed singing Bluethroats, warblers and sparrows, saw young loons grow up, and watched the mountains and tundra change. And if that’s not enough, there’ll be Cookies! We hope to see you there.
