Split up the day for best photographic opportunities; Spent the morning pursuing the Arctic Warbler and Bluethroat; the afternoon outing focused on shorebirds and the fine hospitality of the Safety Checkpoint Roadhouse. Between these excursions we took time to commune with the Northern Shrike nest near Bering Air terminal at the Nome airport. Discovery of the day was Mary's ability to speak Spotted Sandpiper.

Mammals seen: Porcupine, Beaver, Arctic Ground Squirrel on Kougarouk Road; A single Moose on the hillside above the Nome harbor jetty.
