        I had to take a hard look as the Kenai Peninsula is one of the few places in North America that willow, rock and white-tailed ptarmigan coexist. It reminded me that the willow ptarmigan is Alaska’s state bird. And, like the children’s book “If You Give a Moose a Muffin,” it got me wondering how this designation came about in Alaska.

Access these birds over miles of dirt road. Photo: Bristle-thighed Curlew Nome, Alaska by Colin Bradshaw.
