Dropping In

Uploaded by: katy99780

Monday December 3, 2012

Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: This lumberjack was chased away several times by a dominant bird, so when he got his chance, he dropped in and 'settled' right on the 'food patch' as if he was exhausted. I think he might have been in 'heat conservative' mode, as the temp was 50 degrees below zero. (-46 C) He sat very still for several minutes.

I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
