Bird Watching

Bird watching at Chelatna 

The bird life at Chelatna never ceases to amaze. On some days in the Spring, we can see upwards of 20 different species- but we still get some surprises!

If you are interested in bird watching or bird life in Alaska, Chelatna is the place to be. We enjoy a diversity of species during the springtime when the birdwatching is at its best.

One of our favorite times of the year!

The past two years we had a nesting mother eagle with her chicks right near our fishing hole.

The Pine Grosbeaks (below) are a favorite around here as they've been known to eat seed right from your hand- if you're lucky!
