Hello Exploraspective Friends –
A while back I promised more information about my trip to northern Alaska’s Beaufort Sea to accompany bird biologists studying the common eider.
As part of my residency, I was asked to produce an essay about my experience. I can’t cut and paste this article into my blog, nor can I link to it (yes, blogs prevent you from linking to other blogs – crazy, right?) but I can send you to it!
Click the link below to go to the “writings” page of my website. From there, you’ll notice the second entry is called “Chasing Eiders.” Click on that, and you’ll get to the US Fish and Wildlife Service blog, where this article was published. It is an account of the studies being done up there and a little more about what life was like up in the far northern reaches of North America. And there are pictures too, of course…
