We did not find any earth-shattering birds today.

2 American Wigeon (uncommon, but regular out here) and 5 Northern Shovelers highlighted the waterfowl list.

The birds have found all of the new feeders, except for the Thrush Feeder.

Gray-crowned Rosy-Finch at New feeder at Adak National Forest, May 18, 2023.

There were very few birds off the Seawall and no shorebirds on Clam Lagoon.

Waterfowl numbers seem good.

High Lonesome had a Wood Sandpiper and both snipe at the marsh today.

Last May, I posted a photo of a Gray-crowned Rosy-Finch nest located in an old bunker.

Well, the steel shelving on which it was located finally collapsed, so they will have to find a new location.

34 species so far.

PS: Amanda got very good looks and photos of the Hawfinch yesterday.
