Other species we hope for include Ivory Gull (rare), Spectacled, King, and Common eiders, plus a variety of other gulls and seabirds. We will spend most of our time at the base of the point and along various sea watching spots in town. If time permits we will explore the tundra along two roads. With great luck we may see Polar Bears and other marine mammals. The sun does not come up until 09:00 am and sets by 6:30 pm.during October in Barrow, so we will have quite a bit of time relaxing in the hotel and warming back up after sea watching vigils. We will also add a bit of bird watching in the Anchorage area before and after our Barrow adventure. Here we can add a number of sought after boreal specialties like White-winged Crossbills, Pine Grosbeak, Common Redpolls, Bohemian Waxwing, Black-backed and American Three-toed Woodpeckers, and Spruce Grouse to round out an amazing adventure.
