Alaska trip day one - travel day and first birds

ALASKA!  It's official!  We're here!  I can't blog in detail because it's 9:50 in the evening Alaskan time, 1:50 in the morning Eastern time where I came from, I've been up close to 24 hours.  Right now I'm in a nice Bed and Breakfast in Anchorage Alaska.

After landing I did some quick birding around a few spots in Anchorage in good areas noted for boreal birds.  I managed 3 year birds, including two lifers (Common Redpoll and Western Wood-Pewee) as well as year bird White-winged Crossbill.  Tomorrow I try to go after more boreal birds and enjoy the amazing Alaska!

Until later
