Birding in the Mat-Su Valley
The rich Knik Glacier uplands, and Knik River drainage which exits to the Knik Arm tidal ecosystem is the easiest viewing grounds for migrating birds in the Mat-Su Valley. Access to the Palmer Hay Flats is close to Alaska Garden Gate B&B and provides viewing of many species.
The Mat-Su Birders club meets at the Palmer Library and is open to visitors. You can reach them at [email protected]
Here’s another resource for birding activities in Alaska.
You can order Guide To The Birds of Alaska by Robert H. Armstrong. It includes all 443 species of birds found in Alaska, with full-color photos for all bird species that occur regularly in Alaska. It has a birder’s checklist for all birds.
