Birdwatching on Adak
Roughing It On the Rock Rustic Lodging
Adak's position in the Aleutian flyways from Asia to America may offer first reported sightings of rare species of birds blown off course, as well as commonly seen bald eagles, ravens, gray-crowned rosy finchs, snow buntings, pacific wrens and shore birds like sandpipers. Seabird colonies abound along the cliffs within the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge. As of 2016, the number of confirmed species sightings: 208 and counting ...
Birding tours often stock feeding sites around the town of Adak in advance of their arrival assuring great sightings. Several residents have feeders in their yards--you will find one in the front lawn of Roughing It On the Rock Lodge, 216 Umak Circle in Kuluk.
Frank and Barb Haas, birding enthusiasts, are frequent visitors to Adak and maintain Birding on Adak Island, a website with specific information on birds, as well as flora of Adak.
Roughing It On the Rock is a luxurious, hard-shelled tent! If everything were perfect--I would have to change the name!
