Gambell, Alaska, is one of the hotspots in North America for rare birds. We lead trips to this remote village in the Bering Sea each spring and fall hoping to find a few birds more commonly sighted in the Old World. 2017 was an incredible spring for rarities at Gambell and both of our spring tours were loaded with great birds! Rarity highlights included Common Greenshank, Wood Sandpiper, Common Sandpiper, Gray-tailed Tattler, Lesser Sand-Plover, Red-legged Kittiwake, Eyebrowed Thrush, Common Chiffchaff, Pallas’s Bunting, Brambling, and Hawfinch!
