Summertime at Potter Marsh

In early spring hundreds of birds congregate at Anchorage’s Potter Marsh and lay eggs after a long flight from the Lower 48. It’s mid-July now and many of the birds have moved on but for a few. I took these shots on June 24th, 2017 right at the parking lot about 4 feet from the edge of the pavement.

Here’s a video we shot years ago that has some Potter Marsh birds in it.
