The Birds of Kodiak

Did you know Kodiak is home to over 150 different types of birds? Our moderate climate and long days gives them plenty of opportunity to take flight. Kodiak is home to many different species of birds: Swan, Duck, Alcids, Thrushes, Gulls, Plovers and more! If you are into birding, stop by the visitor center and pick up your locally produced Audubon hiking and birding guide. This guide provides you with several locations to get started on your birding adventure; both in town and outside of town. Near Island's North End Park is home to Shorebirds, Gulls, Guillemots, Ducks and Songbirds. You can walk a little further on Near Island to undiscovered paths to see Puffins, Kittiwakes, Cormorants and Oystercatchers.

Kodiak is also home to the Bald Eagle. Come in March and you are sure to see many Bald Eagles in Kodiak's industrial street full of fish processors, as well as hanging outside your local sushi restaurant. I bet you didn't know that Bald Eagle babies are brown!
