Interested in College in Alaska?

Aphriza virgata

I arrived at the beach just as the tide was starting to go out. A flock of surfbirds and a few black turnstones had been hanging out on Sage Rock during the high tide. As the beach became exposed, they flew over and started feeding in the exposed intertidal rocks.

Location: Sage Beach, Sitka, Alaska
