AK is A-OK for the OG by David Bradford At 8:15 AM Friday, 29 May 1998 nine birders from th Houston area and one from Oklahoma where heading north o the first OG field trip to Alaska. A quick visit to Potter's Marsh i Anchorage provided views of a magnificent alternate plumage Pacific Loon as well as Red-necked Grebe, Mew Gull, Arctic Tern and a Northern Waterthrush atop a tree. Later in the evening w enjoyed close up looks at a Northern Saw-whet Owl in a nest box the Boreal Owl nest failed 2 days before our arrival. The following morning a brief visit to Hillside Park i Anchorage provided White-winged Crossbill and great looks a Black-backed Woodpeckers at their nest, a species we would se several times in the park. During subsequent visits to Hillside Par we enjoyed watching male and female Three-toed Woodpecker feeding young at their nest. The keen eyes of Bernice Jackso located both nests. We spent the next 3 nights in the King Eider Inn on th island of St. Paul in the Pribilofs. On these remote rocky island we quickly found several vagrants, then settled in to enjoy th nesting seabird colonies. A Wood Sandpiper, Common Geenshank and female Smew were the vagrants we enjoyed. The Commo Pochard present on our last day eluded us. The seabird colonies allowed close looks at both Tufte and Horned Puffins, Common and Thick-billed Murres, Least Parakeet and Crested Auklets, crested was the least common of th alcids. Along with the alcids were stunning views of light and dar morph Northern Fulmar, many Black-legged Kittiwakes and som of the highly sought Red-legged Kittiwakes. continued on page 6 In this issue Alaska On My Mind 1 OG News, Announcements & Notes 2 Puzzle 3 Clearing House 4 Don't Say No to "Field Notes" 6
