Observation details

Unbelievable. As soon as my plane landed, I was greeted by Chris Feeney who said get your binos and camera there is a Wryneck right over there in the near boneyard. He kindly watched my luggage and a caught a ride over to the bird. That is certainly one way to be greeted at Gambell. The bird was moving around a small area feeding and looking for insects. Photos clearly show all field marks. Life bird and ABA #798.
