A couple of Sundays ago we headed out looking for our spring bird arrivals on some old stomping grounds around here in the valley and got some nice shots of a couple of eagles against Pioneer Mountain. The Matanuska-Susitna Valley is famous for it’s views of Pioneer and although the weather was less than steller it was still a great day to be out and about. Other than a couple of eagles though it has been pretty slim pick’ins lately, althought the warm weather should help coax them in as the water thaws. We will be heading down to Homer shortly and that should help out with a bird fix. The Homer bird scene is heating up and we are looking forward to that trip and can hardly wait to go. The famous Homer Spit is a birding HotHouse toward the end of April early May. Check out the links in the blog entry below if you are interested in the Homer Birding Festival.
