Liz, Ashley, Jennifer and I went on a birding wood gathering walk. On Otter Lake, which apparently has no otters, we found Scaup, Horned Grebe and maybe a Mallard mom with babies (no pics).
This shot was as we were leaving Tatlanika this morning. A big product up here are the paper birch. The native Alaskans use them to make kitchen utensils and they have many other uses too.
Black Capped Chickadee
They burn really well in camp fires as you can see.
A few other birds were cooperative and posed for us. Working on the gull – but one is a California Gull the other? Man I need to study them more.
Yellow Rumped Warbler
This is why!
White Crowned Sparrow
I don't know what to call it
So we go back to the front window.
