The Quiet Life

Canvasback in flight

Well, it's been a while since I posted last. I guess that's what happens when you are staying home and life gets a bit boring. Summer is finally rolling around and it has been a beautiful one so far. I am spending my time climbing, hiking in the mountains, and photographing birds. Life should get a little more interesting soon, however. I've landed a job with the Alaska Dept. of Fish and Game for the summer, and will spend July and August working in a remote field camp on the Susitna river sampling and tagging salmon. And as usual, I am cooking up more travel schemes. I am not sure where to go yet, but if anyone has any ideas what's nice in January... was thinking maybe Patagonia, Central America, or...

Here are a few bird photos, although I am sure the guy next to me with the two foot long lens got better ones than me!

Trumpeter swans

Bluebill, or greater scaup
