Made it all the way out Council Road on our fifth day in Alaska with extended stops at Safety Sound and the railroad to nowhere. Stopped just below Solomon to photograph Yellow Wagtails and an American Kestrel in flight. Gryfalcon nest found as advertised near Milepost 44, but the adult bird afforded only fleeting, distant looks. Luckily, the Wagtails and Wheatear, which we'd seen only partially the day before, were on view.
