The Copper River Valley is a showcase for many kinds of Alaskan wildflowers   Many birds call Copper River Country
home, at least in the summer
In spring, waterfowl flock in great numbers to the Copper River Delta, and on up to the lakes and marshes of the Copper River Valley. Swans, loons, grebes, mergansers, and ducks of many kinds raise their young here during the bustling months of abundant summer sunshine, as do many warblers, sparrows, and raptors. Large trees along shores of major rivers host a thriving population of nesting bald eagles. Ravens--ubiquitous voices of the northland--seem to scoff at lesser species that flee the onset of winter. During the snow months, ravens are joined by gray jays, pine grosbeaks, chickadees, redpolls, ptarmigan, and a only a few other hardy winged companions.
