Description

We saw ten bald eagles on this trip, mostly solitary but also a pair together. A few months earlier (December), there are many more eagles along the Skagit, they congregate in this area in the winter.

We took a float trip down the Skagit River, it was an interesting way to explore the North Cascades. We started at Marble mount and went down to Rockport with Captain Dave.

Description

The kea is the only alpine parrot in the world. I saw this one while hiking the Routeburn Track on the South Isand of New Zealand in Novemebr, 2005. I was climbing up Conical Hill to checkout the many alpine plants near the summit. This bird was curious, but not aggressive, unlike some of its brethren that hang out in the parkings lots down on the Homer tunnel, heading into Milford Sound.

We saw a male mountain bluebird while we were above Libby Lake, at 2470 meteres (8100 feet) while traversing over towards Hoodoo Peak. It was too quick for me to get a photograph. I was amazed as the bird flew on up to Raven Ridge. I would guess it flew up to 2560 meters (8400 feet).
