Nome Harbor

Look for loons, mergansers, gulls, terns, and kittiwakes where the Snake River flows into the Nome harbor area, either close to the beach or in the salt and fresh water mixing zone. When ice covers the harbor during the spring thaw, the plume of river melt attracts a mixture of arriving species seeking open water near the coast. Many birds stay in the area throughout the summer, making this an important local hot spot for birdlife.
