Birds of Wonder Lake
Participants on the 2014 Birds of Wonder Lake Field Course
June is a great pivot point of the year for birds after enduring another epic journey of migration. Join us for three nights and four days at the beautiful Skyline Lodge in the Kantishna region of Denali. With long-time Denali resident and naturalist Nan Eagleson, we’ll enjoy the arrival of Denali’s spring migrants who have come to rub shoulders with hardy winter residents. We’ll learn how to identify birds by sight and sound, and explore kettle ponds to search for waterfowl in vibrant full-breeding plumage. We’ll also discuss avian behavior, habitat selection, food habits and migration ecology.
