I first visited Barrow, AK in a previous life, with film. I went on my own. It was a very disappointing trip. I photographed a very few of the common shorebirds. I saw one or two eiders at distances of a thousand yards. I searched the vast tundra almost completely in vain, not knowing where to look for what. I caught an early flight home.
In June, 2010 I returned to Barrow with Brian L. Zwiebel as my guide. We found and photographed every target shorebird species but one, the elusive and lovely Buff-breasted Sandpiper. We photographed all three species of eiders at close range. In gorgeous settings, in great light. I learned of new and productive spots right in town. I learned new techniques and strategies. I saw and photographed several new species. All thanks to Brian’s knowledge and expertise. In “A Site Guide to Barrow, Alaska,” Brian freely shares all of his knowledge and expertise with you. Whether you are a photographer or a birder, heading to Barrow without a copy of the Barrow Site Guide on your laptop would be pure insanity.
