The Coast International sits right next to Lake Hood - a lake where hundreds of float planes are moored at the edge of the water and take off and land constantly. Also plenty of birds to see there like Red-necked Grebes, Pintail Mama with chicks, Magpies, White-crowned Sparrows, Juncos, Bonaparte's Gulls and more. Savannah Sparrows were gathering nesting material and another surprise was a Spotted Sandpiper sitting on a fence post, then attempting to balance on the fence. It probably had a nest in a nearby ditch.
