Kachemak Bay Birders' UPCOMING EVENTS
Birding, or bird watching, is one of North America's most popular outdoor activities and is practiced by people in many ways. Many birders are fairly casual in their pursuit of birds. A segment of birders, however, find delight in seeking out the rarest of the rare, often investing large amounts of time and money to travel to remote locations on the edge of continent for the opportunity to see something that should not be. Aaron Lang has been guiding birding trips to these destinations in Alaska for 14 years. He'll share some of his experiences and photos from these adventures in the Bering Sea, Aleutian Islands, and the Brooks Range.
