Nestled into the side of the Wedgewood Resort is the Alaska Bird Observatory. At this time the building is only open Monday through Friday (although the trails are accessible every day). These pictures are the combined Friday and Saturday trips.
I believe this is a little Chickadee feeding. The Boreal Chickadees are a hearty species able to make their home here year round.
The Alaska Bird Observatory has direct trail access to Creamer's Field (that's another post).
Information available on the trails at this kiosk.
First things first, we learned to read the trail signs. I don't mind being a scapegoat, but I would like my little companion to have some chance at escape, if so be the case!
We didn't see much wildlife. Could have something to do with the enormous amount of noise we made crunch, crunch, crunching on the ice. Luckily we did not disturb others as we were the only two souls on this little patch of earth at the time.
