Join PAS member and 2015 ABA Young Birder of the Year Dessi Sieburth as he recounts his adventures across Alaska in 2015 and 2016, all illustrated by his own photos. From Denali with its Gyrfalcons, Northern Hawk Owls and Willow Ptarmigans we’ll head on towards Seward to find seabirds at Resurrection Bay. After that it’s on to Homer Spit where rare Rock Sandpipers and a variety of pelagic birds including endangered Kittlitz’s Murrelet can be found. Onwards to Saint Paul Island, where an astonishing variety of seabirds reside including nesting Horned and Tufted Puffins, Thick-billed and Common Murres as well as rare Red-legged Kittiwakes. Our adventure ends in Nome, where singing and displaying Bluethroats and Arctic Warblers dazzle and enchant. Come experience an evening of Alaska’s amazing birds and landscapes through Dessi’s eyes and lens.
