Temp in the 40s, overcast, Wind SE 10-25 mph.
We saw our second Wandering Tattler of the trip at Landing Lights Beach, and this one stayed long enough for a portrait.
The 4 Hawfinches are still here, but fewer and fewer Bramblings remain. The Buffleheads have all but departed, only a few are still here.
The Far Eastern Curlew is still on Clam Lagoon, but the Bar-tailed Godwit has left and we could not find the stints or Dunlins today.
At Andrew Lake, another Common Loon was cooperative.
We added Long-tailed Duck to the triplist, giving us 80!
We finally caught up with the Black-headed Gull at Landing Lights Beach. This time he didn’t disappear…
However, the big news out here is the gas station is offline. They say it won’t be fixed until Tuesday! Fortunately, we were able to scrounge up some gas to get us through tomorrow, but other birders coming in may have some problems. This has happened to us before, so we are not terribly surprised.
This will be our last post until Tuesday. We leave tomorrow at 6 pm Adak time, and arrive (hopefully!) home around 5 pm eastern on Monday.
What a fantastic trip!
