Observation details

The ptarmigan returned about a month ago, and they tend to gather in the willows along the Yukon River. Some years they come into town (this year, 2012, 2007) and some years they are nowhere to be found. We had one year where hundreds of them appeared (2012) and last year there were none. The photo is from Jan 21 in old town.
