A few asian 'vagrants' from a recent fall trip. YES, there are all the spring goodies such as the
Puffins, Kittiwakes, Auklets, Cormorants, etc. but the possibilities for great Asian strays
is also quite high as shown in the below species images of Asian birds in fall
King Eider Hotel shuttle bus picks you up to carry you out to points of interest
(actually not sure as of 2011 if this bus is still utilized - I did not see any such bus in 2011)
New King Eider Hotel Sign (much nicer with almost all the amenities at the airstrip -not in town as old hotel)
The OLD King Eider Hotel - it looks much more run down now and is not utilized for anything either
The Cliffs at St. Paul where nesting Puffins, Auklets, Cormorants and Kittiwakes can be found
Another view of the cliffs from a 'birds eye view' as well as the snow even though June!
Crab Pots (area where many rare asian stray birds are found) that await loading on crab boats for
crabbing season about to start in October (note Arctic Fox walking across the road)
St. Paul village with a rainbow forming (right) on a 'nice' day
The 'Crab Boats' of St. Paul Island - as seen on the TV show Deadliest Catch - loading up and heading out for Crabbing season

There is much more to come but it takes a great deal of time
to scan and upload images for your enjoyment !!
