Shorebirds, Brown Bears and Moose, Oh My!
Just when I was getting a handle on the shorebirds in Yakutat, I was lucky enough to encounter three moose and one brown bear. Wildlife has sprung out from the woods as the migration of the shorebirds slowly comes to an end, leaving me starstruck to encounter two giant mammals that I would never encounter at home, EVER! On a side note, I am working with Susan and others to prepare for the Tern Festival, and I am super excited to be a part of a festival for my favorite seabird. I hope someday when I’m in graduate school, I will be able to come back to Yakutat and work on the projects about the terns they are studying and help better understand this amazing seabird.
