With all the strong West winds we have been having I was hoping this was going to be a japonicus American Pipit but after looking at the pictures it appears to be your standard Alaskan pacificus race. Adak does not get very many vagrant passerines from either the East or West so anytime you see something other than the normal Rosy Finch or Lapland Longspur its an exciting event! (-:
