AK - Arctic Loons - 06/21
Arctic Loons - Nome, Alaska, June 21st, 2010. Most birds, like these, were 200-300 meters offshore.
Just back from another fantastic Alaska trip with Birdfinders, June 10th - 26th . Amongst the many highlights, an exceptional showing of Arctic Loons Gavia arctica viridigularis in Nome with perhaps as many as nine at three different locations on June 21st. At point we had five birds in view at the same time.
