Trip Notes

Still in eager puppy mode, we stopped the car for nearly every bird, had a wonderful time at the Penny river photographing warblers and tried our stalking technique on several Willow Ptarmigan. The sighting of the day was probably the Short-tailed Weasel, bounding amongst rocks at the turnoff for Woolley Lagoon. A wagtail seen on the left side of the road could not be refound and so was not counted as a lifebird for Mary and Bill.

Mammals: Reindeer, Arctic Ground Squirrel, Short-tailed Weasel. Musk Ox (two herds, 19 and 13 individuals, respectively; both herds with babies)
