Photos of Goosander, Common surfbird, Greater Yellowlegs, Spruce grouse, Trumpeter swan, Great horned owl, Bald eagle and others.

The Goosanders (Mergus Merganser) at the Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park in Alaska are excellent divers. They hunt for fish and small crustaceans directly under the water surface. They can dive on the wing, and eels come first on their wish list. After almost every dive they have a prey fish in their bill.

In late autumn I found a Spruce Grouse (Dendragapus canadensis) in the thick undergrowth at the Brooks River. This beautiful and friendly bird was busy gathering berries and showed no shyness at all.

Greater Yellowlegs (Tringa melanoleuca) are on their way at the shores of the lakes in the back country. This is also the home of the Great Horned Owl (Bubo virginianus).

The Bald Eagle rests in an exposed position at the shore of a nameless river in the back country of the Katmai National Park.

We met the Common Surfbird (Aphriza virgata) at the Cook Inlet. In some distance from Cook Inlet towards the heartland there is a small lake which is almost completely overgrown by plants. The lake is hardly accessible and can only be reached from one side over a small path. Birds which became almost extinct are living here: Trumpeter Swans (Cygnus buccinator). The parents and two young swans are circling. In late autumn I found a Spruce Grouse (Dendragapus canadensis) in the thick undergrowth at the Brooks River.

The fairy tale movie of the director Richard Rich, based on a story of the famous author of children’s books E. B. White, made the Trumpeter Swans< known to a large public. “The Trumpet of the Swan “ tells the story of young Louie.

The rare Trumpeter Swan is North America’s biggest waterfowl with a wingspread of up to 2.5 metres, a weight of 15 kilograms and a height of up to 1.20 metres.
