The multitude of breeding shorebirds is one of the main reasons you will want to book your trip to Nome. Also, our visit to Nome is timed to take advantage of the beautiful tundra wildflower bloom which we will strive to incorporate into some of our bird compositions as well. Some of the species we encounter will be tending to nests or newly hatched young. We will give them the space they need but use their sometimes bold behavior to our advantage. In addition to the shorebirds we will attempt to photograph several species of waterfowl, Red-throated Loons, and Arctic and Aleutian Terns. We will keep our eyes peeled for Willow and Rock Ptarmigan as well as the often cooperative Long-tailed Jaegers. Lapland Longspur and American Pipit can sometimes be photographed among stunning flowers and a long list of other songbirds including Arctic Warbler and Bluethroat will be on our radar. All of these wonderful birds can be found along the extensive roadways surrounding Nome while daily flights with Alaska Airlines from Anchorage make getting to Nome a snap.
