Subject: [wisb] American Avocets Lakeshore State Park MKE Co. 5/5/18, some images...
Hi all,
My first stop this morning for birding was Lakeshore Sate Park in
Milwaukee. A bird I have been waiting for since the last time they were on
the lakefront, the American Avocet were present there. They were at the
beach area and doing some feeding and preening, but for the most part they
rested. Once they were flushed by a dog walker with 3 dogs at the end of
the beach, but that was the only time they took to the skies and they were
present when I left. There where 11 birds present in this flock. An amazing
bird to photograph and watch too on a mostly sunny day with temps in the
70’s and little wind.

A link to a few images from the day of this beautiful bird that visits our
state:
