Seward Winter Birding Field Trip

The annual AAS Seward Winter Birding Field Trip is a great way to celebrate the coming of Spring (or said another way, the ending of winter!) by scouring the Seward, Alaska for birds. From Lowell Point to 4th of July Beach.

It’s a Field Trip to shake off those mid winter “blahs”, work of some of those Holiday cookies, and help usher in Spring. Who knows what will turn up?

Seward Winter Birding Field Trip

Work off all those Holiday Cookies!

Join Andrew Fisher and Anchorage Audubon for a free winter birding excursion to enjoy Seward’s diversity of wintering birds and the possibility of a few rarities (Pie-billed Grebe, Hooded Mergansers, etc.).  Come dressed for a variety of weather conditions, bring your ice grippers, and plan for a fun day with great company!

Bring your binoculars and spotting scope (if you have one…there never are too many!), your field guide, and other favorite birding gear.  You may also wish to bring walkie-talkies/cell phones to communicate between cars.  Donations of sunflower bird seed or chunky peanut butter are greatly appreciated for one of our regular bird feeder hotspots.

Plan on gathering with the group back at the Harbormaster’s for a midday restroom stop and lunch; bring your own or buy it locally.
