Birding Alaska: Young Birder of the Year 2015, Dessi Sieburth, presents his Alaska Birding trip 2015

Young birder, Dessi Sieburth, who is 12 years old, has already birded in many States. This July [2015] he went to Alaska and this trip was for sure a highlight among his birding trips in the U.S. Dessi will present some photos and relate interesting facts learned about the birds he saw in Alaska. His goal was to see many specialty birds of Alaska such as: Gyrfalcon, Northern Hawk Owl and Ptarmigan. He started out his birding trip to Denali National park where he also got a chance to interview Carol McIntyre, a biologist who studies the reproductive success of Golden Eagles. Then, he travelled to Seward to find seabirds at Resurrection Bay. Black-legged Kittiwakes, Marbled Murrelet, Puffins, and Harlequin ducks were some highlights on his boat trip. After that, Dessi went to the Homer spit where he saw the Rock Sandpiper and more pelagic birds such as the Kittlitz's Murrelet. Dessi ended up with over 90 species including 23 lifers. This year Dessi will participate in 2016 ABA young birder photography contest. Some of the photos taken during the Alaska trip will be part of the contest. Good Luck Dessi!
