Lapland Longspurs are the most visible passerines throughout the season. Their musical songs fill the spring and summer air. This Longspur is pictured perched on the gravestone (of James Heath, a Gunner's Mate on the USS Concord in the late 1800s) that any visitor to St. Paul will recognize as the crown of Hutchinson Hill, possibly the most productive vagrant trap on the island.

Alaskan Wild Bison. Bison are grazing animals and, in Alaska, they find food along rivers, recently burned areas, and sedge potholes. Their diet is made up mainly of various grasses and forbs like vetch, a favored summer food found on gravel bars. They also eat sedges, silverberry, willow, and ground birch. Photo by: Ashley Sloan

Broad-billed Sandpiper (Calidris falcinellus) by John A Thompson Al Wakrah Beach, Qatar
