A Birder's Alaskan Extravaganza

Five black and white seabirds sit on grassy ledge.

Every year, thousands of birds from all seven continents migrate up to Alaska for the summer. Hundreds of bird species like Arctic terns, bristle-thighed curlews, and rufous hummingbirds all fly thousands of miles to make a summer home in Alaska! Time your visit to attend one of the many Bird Festivals celebrated around the state. There are great places to view birds all over the state and listed here are just a few to get you started.
