Bird Watching

Many of the 236 species of birds recorded for Homer can be seen through the spring, summer and early fall...

This includes many species of sea ducks, like the Harlequin & Golden Eye, the greater Pacific Loon, Arctic and Aleutian Terns, Fork-tailed Storm-Petrels and Tufted and Horned Puffins. Red-faced Cormorants and thousands of Common Murres and Black-legged Kittiwakes are assembling near their nesting sites on Gull Island.

Common Eiders, Pigeon Guillemots, Marbled and perhaps Kittlitz’s Murrelets are out on the Bay. Three-toed and Black-backed Woodpeckers are resident in spruce woods, along with Warblers, Gyrfalcons and Swallows, and of course there are always many Bald Eagles!
