Many local birds have new, winter plumage, and Juneau Audubon Society wants to enable folks to pick out the new-look birds.

Juneau Audubon Society will deliver a lecture about identifying birds with winter plumage at 7 p.m. Thursday at University of Alaska Southeast’s Egan Library, Room 112, 11120 Glacier Highway.

The talk is free and open to the public.

The ranked choice outcome for Alaska’s U.S. Senate race is shown during an Alaska Public Media broadcast on Thursday. Incumbent Lisa Murkowski defeated fellow Republican Kelly Tshibaka by getting more than 50% of votes when two lower-finishing candidates were eliminated, with votes from people opting for Democrat Pat Chesbro as their first choice providing the necessary margin. Murkowski supporters note she won more first-choice votes than Tshibaka and thus would have prevailed without ranked choice voting, while Tshibaka supporters claim the challenger would have prevailed back in August under a closed-primary system and thus almost certainly would have won the general election.
