I am back from the wild. Actually I will be in Fairbanks for less than 24 hours. We had some good weather and worked hard out there. We finished up all of our point counts with a few days to spare and came back early, However one of the other crews has not been so fortunate so now we will making an impromptu excursion into the White Mountains to give them a hand finishing up. It will be great because I have spent the last month in a soggy boggy wetland and the White Mountains are a higher elevation area, with different habitat comes different wildlife.
I wish I had time to post some pictures but that might have to wait a few days. Suffice to say, I have seen things I have dreamed about but never believed I would see. I have learned a great deal about Alaska, Birds, and the natural world.
My mind, body, heart and soul have been re-calibrated by this immersion into nature.
