907 Updates December 30, 2021

By Bill Sherwonit, Anchorage Press: City Wilds: Remembering legendary Anchorage birder Dave DeLap
Preliminary results for Anchorage’s 2021 Christmas Bird Count (CBC) have been reported and based on the initial compilation of data, participants in the Dec. 18 count observed 44 species and 13,137 individual birds. Among the “unusual” birds noted by compilers were a great gray owl, two trumpeter swans, a northern flicker and a flock of snow buntings. But what was most unusual—and most notable—about this year’s count was an absence. For the first time in more than a half-century Dave DeLap did not participate.


We are offering an intensive Trailing & Human Remains Detection (HRD) Seminar 22-25 May 2022, in Anchorage. The trailing spots are limited. If you are interested in attending or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. There is also additional information on the website www.K94N6.com as well.
