Last Tango in Barrow

[This Peregrine Falcon swept into Point Barrow with his mate and snatched a Semipalmated Sandpiper on our last morning in Alaska. They disappeared low over the northern horizon, meaning pretty much headed for the north pole - with the unfed female in hot pursuit of a Black Guillemot!]

Well, we're back. There's night here, most unusual. And Laughing Gulls, haven't seen one of them in like three weeks. Kind of like dark, which seems weird.

You need to go to Barrow once in your life, at least. Trust me.

At some point I'll put a link to our actual itinerary from the Alaska trip here - it will be on the NJA website soon.
