Barrow Update - June 10th

Sorry for the lack of blog posts the past few days, I’ve been pretty busy now that nest searching started. I will do a separate post later on what exactly we are doing. I just thought I’d post a few pictures before you think a Polar Bear got me or something…

Hey Ethan,

Wow, fabulous photos! One of my favorite things on my visits to Barrow was getting to see all those phalaropes in the rich colors of breeding plumage. But I never got photos as good as yours.

What a great opportunity you've got to learn about the nesting behavior of all these birds. Keep up the good work and keep us posted on how it's going!
