|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).

|6/18 thru 6/20/2017 : St. Paul's Island, Alaska: We sure had fun here! Horned Puffin , Gray-crowned
Rosy-finch, Crested Auklet , and the Pacific Wren Bering Sea subspecies (alascensis) .
|6/18 thru 6/20/2017: St. Paul's Island, Alaska: Northern Fulmar and the reindeer herd that was very
surprised to see us so close once the fog lifted.
|6/18 thru 6/20/2017: St. Paul's Island, Alaska: Thick-billed Murre and some Red-legged Kittiwake/
Black-legged Kittiwake comparison images (FOR more RLKI, click on NEXT PAGE below) and a Lapland

along with Red-necked Stint.
