Thoughts of Recent Trips
The birding season is at its peak. The first tours have been very successful – all enthusiasts who have been on the tours with us have had a unique opportunity to see many male Steller `s Eiders in ideal conditions.
On our 6-day trip last week, we saw more than 80 bird species. Due to late spring the activity of forest birds was relatively low, but now woodpeckers and owls have become much more vociferous. We found all of our Gamebirds, including Black Grouse and Capericaillie and now White-backed and Grey-headed Woodpeckers are very active as well. The crown jewel of our recent tours was certainly Hawk Owl.
We are waiting for warmer weather sometime next week as the forecast predicted and then it will be the perfect time to observe the key species of forest birds. At the same time the spectacular migration of birds north should get underway!
