This is quite odd. Robins are so rare that the indiginous people don't even have a name for them. I won't say this is indicative of global warming, but something is screwy with the weather.

Good link, Esoterica. I know a certain wildlife biologist who is going to have nightmares about this story. She already break out in a sweat when I mention short-stopping Canada Geese! This is just strange.

Good stuff, Esoterica.
That would be quite the surprise to see there.
The weather has been screwy for the past years, and seems to be heading even further in that direction.
I don't know what to think.

I worked in Deadhorse, AK for 6 or 7 years and I never saw a Robin.

The weather is getting warmer, but a robin above the circle does not surprise me. This was, be aware, in 1993.

Areas below and at the circle support massive amounts of birds, from all over the world. The geese arrived just last week, I wish everyone here could hear their cry as they keep pouring in.

Just recently, there were several new types of species spotted here, I will follow up if I can find it again.

Any bird flying in migration can easily get blown off course, especially given the winds we feel here in Alaska. 2 or 3 days of 70 to 110 knot winds will take anything a little off course! The Chinook Winds, whew!

Anyhow, if you are a birder, check it out here. Geese everywhere, literally. Bald eagles also ( I throw fresh caught rainbow trout to bald eagles, and they dive and catch) One of my favorite fishing spots is right close to an eagle nest- about the size of a Volkswagon in the tree.
