About ten years ago I went to a natural area called John's Park in south Anchorage. I thought I remembered it being located on a bluff overlooking the coastal mudflats. I thought that maybe I could access the mudflats from there. Since I have not seen a Buff-breasted Sandpiper, I took a day to look for it on Thursday.
The photo above is John's Park. It was pretty quiet. Only a Red Squirrel, chickadees, Red-breasted Nuthatches, and a single Magpie.
I did see the weasel again though I could not manage any photos. The photo above is a pair of sleeping greenwings in their usual slough next to Westchester Lagoon.
Anyway I saw the usual Mallards and Canada Geese. The Bald Eagle was not in it's tree. It was out on the mudflats. Only two Greater Yellowlegs, no dowitchers or cranes. Things are starting to quiet down around here. If you go to the Coastal Trail during the winter, you usually see absolutely no wildlife at all.
