Several changes came about today, but unfortunately my year-total did not change. The winds are now blowing out of the southwest which is exactly what we want for Asian strays. Perhaps after 3 1/2 days of northeast winds, it will take another day. I’m optimistic about our chances; we shall see what tomorrow brings.
The Wings tour is over and most of the participants left on the 5:00 PM flight to Nome. I’m staying on for two more days as an independent and will be birding with some of the heavy hitters (more on that later). The Wings group had a good dynamic to it. Everybody got along with each other and helped to find birds.
I’ll try and post tomorrow with some pictures.
