The pleasure of travel, for me, is greatly enhanced and extended by the photos I bring back. A glance at this image brings into sharp focus in my memory the movements and the calls of this female Yellow Wagtail that I watched last month about 50 miles north of Nome. The sensation is perhaps intensified by the fact that, except for an accidental that I saw here in Oregon a few years ago, I have seen Yellow Wagtails only in several Asian countries. Somehow this species doesn't seem to belong on a list of the birds of North America, but it does. They are certainly making themselves at home near Nome.
