First Arrivals

The beginning of spring bird migration in Anchorage is usually noted by the arrival of gulls in midtown.  Traditionally I’ve expected them during the first week of April, but this year they arrived on March 30th, adding another twist to a rather unusual year.  Canada geese and other waterfowl will be close behind, followed by numerous songbirds.  It’s nice to see the season change.
