|6/2/2017 thru 6/20/17 We traveled around Alaska! After a brief stop in Anchorage, we flew to Adak Island in
the Aleutian chain where we met up with John of Zungunruhe Birding Tours and had a great pelagic trip (3
albatross species!). Thanks, John and the crew of the Puk uk! Then it was on to Barrow (phalaropes and
eiders!), Nome (Bristle-thighed Curlew and Golden Eagle nest!), and finally out to the nesting cliffs of St
Paul Island (Red-legged Kittiwake and puffins AND where we ran into a herd of 200 reindeer).
