These stops on the east edge of Nome (described in more detail in the Council Road section) offer freshwater ponds adjacent to the marine water coastline that attract a wide variety of spring migrant waterbirds and shorebirds as the ice is melting in late May and early June. The area is worth checking regularly because arriving species often make a short stop before moving inland. By mid-summer, early departing shorebirds gather to feed and fatten before migration.
