Temp in the 40s, partly sunny, Wind SW 5-15 mph

Our final day.

We added Yellow-billed Loon to the Trip List.

At least three Short-tailed Shearwaters were still hanging out in Kuluk Bay near the Palisades Overlook.

Short-tailed Shearwaters, Kuluk Bay, September 28, 2019

I did not walk out on Clam Lagoon and we did not see the Marsh Sandpiper from shore.

It was a good trip, but not great.

We added one new bird to our Adak list – Greater Yellowlegs.

We had five Asian strays – Red-necked Stint, Marsh Sandpiper, Sharp-tailed Sandpiper, Brambling, and Gray-tailed Tattler.

The Short-tailed Shearwaters hanging out in Kuluk Bay for most of the trip was fun.

Although the Marsh Sandpiper was not new for us, it was only our second and I got great photos.

The Marine invasion that we were so concerned about never happened.

Our trip home was uneventful.

Final Trip List was 56 (Average = 54). Final Year List was 85 (average = 82.5 – love that half-bird!)

Today’s eBird checklist is at:

We will be back.
