    Default Birding in Barrow

    A few bird pictures so far this spring.

    These are an Arctic Tern.

    Last, and maybe least too, is a Pectoral Sandpiper.

    All of these images were shot using a Nikon D2x with a 400mm f/2.8 lens plus a Kenko 300 Pro 2x TC.

    Really a nice set of images with the sandpiper being the topper IMO. Nicely done.

    Default love watching

    the Plover species.
    these birds are lots of fun and enjoy.
    the pacific Loon has such a clean look about it..
    the feather on the head must really be fine and tight to look like that
    I seldom see these birds inland.
    I say a red throated loon last week, along with several dozen common loon,
    One of the furthest traveled birds in the world the Arctic Tern is also fun
    the way they control themselves by spreading the tail..
    sometimes in a V and sometimes all the feathers together.
    amazing that they travel from Antartica to here in Alaska every year.
    Thanks Floyd
