Bird Photography Alaska Trip

Got back a few weeks ago from my first long trip with my new 16 ft. Scamp. I drove to Alaska then north on the Dalton Highway to Coldfoot and on to Deadhorse. My main focus was birding and bird photography, I put up some photos at the link:

I'm recently retired and plan to do lot more of this!

Even a couple of hours is worth it - we walked this morning for an hour and a half and saw over 30 species. There are places all over - birds have wings and you find them everywhere!

Think of where you can sit or walk for a bit after a 15 drive.

Kingfishers are hard because they are so wary and fast. I finally got one.

No pictures. Left the camera in Wisconsin. Thought I heard robins singing and what do you know, the creek is full of them.

Thumbs up Day dreaming of birds

Wow, some great shots everyone. Thanks for the tip on the state parks Tom. I want to get my boler soon and hopefully make it to the Rio Grande Birding festival one year. 92 lifers sound awesome.

Cheers,
mark

I am a very beginning bird watcher and primarily watch the feeders from my window, and of course the beautiful birds at the shore. But I was not able to get my grandkids to have any interest until I got my iphone. There is an app called "ibird" which is free and the kids are fascinated. We watch for birds at the feeder and on walks, check the pictures on the iphone, hear the warble, check the locations, etc. and are able to identify the birds immediately. The free app does not have a lot of birds represented, but so far we have found the ones in our area. There are better apps for a small cost and I may upgrade soon. We can even take photos as soon as we spot something close enough. It is a good experience and it is getting so that they will call to tell me about a bird they have seen - they love woodpeckers, or as the little one says..peck wooders.
