Take your itinerary with you using our My Alaska Trip feature and the TravelAlaska app.
Millions of birds flock to Alaska to take advantage of the long summer days, mating and raising their young while food is plentiful, then migrating back south for the winter. April, May and June are the best months to see these travelers passing through or laying claim to summer territories. Most communities have at least one birding festival to celebrate their migratory visitors, or you can take a guided tour with a professional guide who'll help you identify rare species and snag the best photos. Don't forget about the seabirds: Species like cormorants, albatrosses, murres, auklets, kittiwakes and the clownish, colorful puffin often number in the millions, nesting in sheer cliffside colonies along Alaska's southern and western coastline.
