More Birding news

A sure sign of Spring is the arrival of the Snow Bunting and we weren't sure if Juneau was on the route but it is! We saw a group of 5-6 at the wayside at Eagle Beach on Sunday. It was a beautiful sunny, bright-blue-sky day and we took a walk along the gravel, sandy beach. The tides were high during mid-day this weekend so we weren't able to go too far in either direction. The wayside is in a large meadow and during the summer we've seen different sparrows here. Another sure sign of spring is seeing swans. I had just asked Tim if he thought we'd see any swans this year and wondered if we would see them being so near the salt water. At first we thought they were pelicans but they were tundra swans!
