The curlew bluff was at mile marker 72. They went out to 74.4 to see the Bluethroat, turned back toward Nome and at mile marker 42 got sort of looks at the Gyrfalcon on its nest. The best for John was the Arctic Warbler at 24.4 because everyone told John he was too early for it.
For added fun, a really grizzled grizzly bear lumbered along down the creek next to the road.
John has an ABA big year total of 526.
