Andrew Fisher will lead this outing to a number of good waterbird locations around town including Westchester Lagoon and Lake Hood.

The field trip typically concludes at about 12:00 PM, but do bring snacks and/or a lunch if you want to keep birding with others afterwards.

June 2016 Ferry Trip to Dutch Harbor

June, 2016

with Aaron Bowman

Several Anchorage Audubon members are organizing a guided birding trip on the Tustumena ferry from Homer to Dutch in June. We are also hoping to charter a boat in Dutch to better our chances of seeing the Whiskered Auklet.

The ferry schedule doesn’t come out until November but the cabins fill up very quickly so we are doing some preplanning now.

Aaron Bowman’s Big Year

by Aaron Bowman

7:00 PM

Our January program will finally present the December talk which was unfortunately cancelled due to an encounter with an unknown illness which got the better of our esteemed speaker.

But once again, Anchorage Audubon presents another fabulous birding talk, and this one will be a total treat to start your New Year!  Aaron Bowman, Anchorage Audubon’s Field Trip Czar, has been on a year-long quest to do an Anchorage Big Year.

And now that it’s over, and Aaron will share his quest with us at this month’s meeting and program.

During 2014, Aaron scoured the Municipality and has found at least one “First Ever Anchorage Bird” which turned up on the foulest day of the year.  Only Aaron would have even left the safety of his house on that day!

Aaron’s Big Year is a glimpse into what we can all find without leaving our own back yard, and it’s an evening you won’t want to miss.

And we wouldn’t even think about starting the New Year without cookies!
