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).

Caption: Fanciest birds of the neighborhood.
This is a male; the females are a dusky green olive color.
Largest of the 'winter finches,' and I believe pine grosbeaks are the farthest north finch.
