Description

Male and female with brood.

From the Cornell Birds of North America focal species account:

L. l. alascensis Swarth, 1926: Throughout most of mainland Alaska, except Alaska Peninsula and southern coast. Medium-sized (male wing length averages 195.6 mm, tail 122.9 mm); in autumn, buffier than alexandrae; slightly broader bill. Most widely studied subspecies in North America for morphology. Varies little in wing and tail length geographically, but body mass varies. Birds from interior Alaska along upper and middle Yukon River are lighter. Mass increases in Brooks Range and along southwestern coast; continues to increase westward to lower Yukon and Kuskokwim Rivers and to northwestern coast from Kotzebue to Barrow; heaviest birds found on Seward Peninsula (West et al. West and Meng 1968, West et al. 1970).
