About a month ago, Greg Hottman asked if I had been out there. I said no ,but then remembered going out one winter. It's a nice place to take a hike, and has to be beautiful, in the summer.
I saw 4 ammodramus sparrows in my walk . All looked to be LeConte's. I only saw one perched, it was windy.

Subject: [wisb] cattle egret et al.
Wisbirders
Yesterday morning I saw a single cattle egret in a farm pasture on CTH D about 2 mi SW of S Beaver Dam in Dodge Co. Seems a little late for them but since I don't see a lot of them (this was my FOY), maybe it's not. Or maybe it was still around because it is the much rarer horse egret....it was following two horses and there were no cattle to be seen.

Today I checked out Horicon Marsh along the auto trail and Rt 49. A pretty good variety of ducks but nothing unusual. Pintail was the most common duck. At the Refuge HQ on Rt 28 there was a Canada goose with an all white head and neck in the first pond behind the HQ. Also a harrier and a sharpie who took turns chasing one another.

Subject: [wisb] Surf Scoter, etc - Lk Mendota
I checked Lk Mendota from the west side this morning. From Marshall Park I
found 2 Common Loons way out but not together. One had adult plumage still,
the other either young or in winter plumage, too far out to tell. From
Mendota Co. Park nothing but a few Ring-billed Gulls. At Gov. Nelson I
scoped from the beach area and found 1 Surf Scoter mixed in with a dozen
Ruddy Ducks and a few Lesser Scaup drifting with a raft of Coots quite a
ways out. Large flocks of Coots seem all over now. Songbirds along the
trails were Robins, Blue Jays, Yellow-rumped Warblers, Palm Warblers and a
N. Filcker.

Subject: [wisb] Fall LeConte's

I went out to Lake Barney to chase adult LeConte's. I was trying to get to 20 different LeConte's for the fall. I got 2 there and saw 3 Nelson's. Also 7 pipits came into the wet pasture. I then stopped at the field north of the Stoughton Walmart. There's a neat little wet grass patch right by the retention pond. I found a very orange adult LeConte's there. May have been a second bird there.So I hit my goal of 20 for the fall. This was in 8 different spots. So many of the adults ,this year, gave outstanding close views.

Subject: [wisb] Re: October 14 Hummingbird
I was down to one ruby-throated hummingbird for the past week. She was seen irregularly usually dawn and dusk. Then what do you know? While watching my backyard ruby-throated hummingbird sit at the feeder for a marathon 16 minutes this evening, another hummingbird flew in! It paused about 4 ft from the nectaring bird and reversed course to the front yard feeders!

And then there were two! ...soon there will be none.

And then the wishful waiting and keeping out feeders continues in hopes of attracting a Rufous or Anna's Hummingbird or an even rarer vagrant hummingbird.

Odds will start to increase significantly as we progress into late October and further into fall/winter that a hummingbird you observe at your feeders or flowers is something other then a Ruby-throated.

So be very attentive to any hummingbird you observe now through winter. Get your guides out. Familiarize yourself with Rufous and Anna's. Have your cameras ready for something different. And should you be so lucky to attract a rare hummingbird, please consider allowing "your" hummingbird to be banded by Mickey O'Connor or myself. We are both federally permitted to band hummingbirds in Wisconsin. We collaborate to band fall/winter hummingbirds in order to document and identify these vagrant hummingbirds as well further our understanding of their migration/vagrancy and biology.

Subject: [wisb] Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs at Lakeshore State Park MKE Co. 10/15/17, some images...
Hi all,
A stop at Lakeshore State Park in Milwaukee early this morning provided
nice views of both the Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs. A total of 4 Greaters
and 1 Lesser. When I arrived, just the 4 Greaters were present, after a few
minutes the Lesser Yellowlegs showed up. They look tired as they probably
just had put on some miles. They did next to no feeding while I was there
and just rested. Also present at Lakeshore State park provided a brief view
of a American Woodcock as it flushed while I walked the path and it just
went way up and headed north, also an American Kestrel which I have not
seen for awhile. Another lakefront beach, McKinley had 12 Sanderlings, and
the Black Scoters were still present off North Point that Tom W reported
yesterday. It was a cool morning, overcast with some strong west winds and
a mist once in awhile.

Images of both the Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs from this morning at the
link below if you care to view them:

Subject: [wisb] GLOSSY/WHITE-FACED IBIS at Goose Pond, Columbia County
Quick stop at Goose Pond this morning yielded a good assortment of
waterfall. Three early TUNDRA SWANS (have been present a couple of days
according to Mark Martin).
Best find though was what I thought was a Cormorant flying in the distance,
but when I put my bins on it was a GLOSSY/WHITE-FACED IBIS, seen at a
distance flying over east pond to the north. It seemed like it landed
somewhere along the north shoreline of the Eastpond, but I was unable to
re-find it with a scope in limited time available. Dark Ibis with long
curved Ibis like bill. Mark Martin came by a few minutes later and told me
he had seen it in the southeast corner of the Eastpond just a few minutes
before I did. He had went back to get his camera.

Good birding.

As of noon today, lucky Friday the 13th, there were 24 Surf Scoters and 5
Black Scoters north of Bradford Beach off North Point in Lower Lake Park.
Otherwise, nothing too unusual to report from the Milwaukee lakefront. Lots
of kinglets, White-crowned and White-throated Sparrows, and a few Winter
Wrens were at Lake Park , and 10 Sanderlings were at McKinley Beach. I
looked for the Lapland Longspur that Jim Edlhuber aptly photographed, but it
wasn't there.
Warblers are decreasing, and the only species I saw today were
Yellow-rumped, Palm, Nashville, Orange-crowned, and Tennessee.

I walked around Lerner this morning The habitat looked pretty good for ammodramus sparrows, but I wasn't finding any. I came across a nice group of W-c Sparrows, with a couple of the younger ones being the Gambel's race Saw one Lincoln's in that area , but everything else was Song and Swamp Sparrows.
I got to the southend and decided to check a pond area. That spot had been mowed, but just north of there was a huge weed field. This is by the corner of Jefferson and Alpine. The edge looked great, but I wasn't seeing anything. Then up popped the orangest LeConte's ,I've seen this fall. It was social and gave great views till some blackbirds flushed. In most of the field ,the weeds are 5-6 feet tall, so I walked by the tree line. Lots of birds, but hard to see any.

Horicon Marsh Bird Club to host Wisconsin Stopover Initiative’s Kim Grveles on Oct. 19

HORICON, WISCONSIN – Kim Grveles of the Wisconsin DNR’s Stopover Initiative, will present a program on migratory bird stopover sites on Thursday, October 19th at the next meeting of the Horicon Marsh Bird Club. The meeting will start at 7p.m. and be held in the lower level of the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center.

Every spring and fall, tens of millions of migrating birds sweep through the Great Lakes region and stop at a variety of sites on their way to breeding grounds as far north as Greenland and the Arctic Ocean and wintering grounds as far south as Argentina’s Tierra del Fuego. These stopover sites provide birds with critical food and shelter during migration. Loss of stopover habitats poses an ongoing threat to the health and stability of migratory bird populations in the Great Lakes region.

For decades, reported declines in migratory bird populations have resulted in studies focused primarily on breeding and, to a lesser extent, wintering bird populations. Only recently has serious attention been given to identifying, prioritizing and protecting migratory bird stopover sites.

This presentation will discuss the work of the Wisconsin Stopover Initiative including the following topics: 1) Migratory birds and why stopover habitats are important to their survival; 2) What is the significance of the Great Lakes region, particularly Wisconsin’s Lake Michigan basin, for migratory birds? 3) What are some backyard habitat features used by migratory birds? 4) Easy contributions that citizens can make to benefit migratory birds and the habitats on which they depend as they journey through our Great Lakes neighborhoods.

Kim has a master’s degree in conservation biology from Central Michigan University. Kim has worked on bird conservation in the Bureau of Natural Heritage Conservation (formerly Endangered Resources) at the Department of Natural Resources since 2005. In addition to coordinating the Wisconsin Stopover Initiative, Kim also tracks rare and endangered birds for the Wisconsin Natural Heritage Inventory Program and works on the Kirtland’s Warbler Conservation Strategy in Wisconsin.
You do not have to be a member of the Bird Club to attend this free program. All ages are welcome. For more information, please visit www.horiconmarshbirdclub.com or call 920-387-7893.
The Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center is located at N7725, Hwy. 28 between the towns of Horicon and Mayville on Hwy. 28. Please use the lower entrance.

While golfing Old Hickory, east of Beaver Dam, I saw 7 birds fly across the fairway. I thought they were crossbills (against the gray sky), but I can't hear well enough. So, I asked my brother if had his hearing aids in (yes) and then if he heard the jip jip jip calls. He said yes and that they were still calling from the trees.
So, maybe. Steve Thiessen Stoughton Dane Co.

A stop at McKinley Beach this morning in Milwaukee provided nice views of a
Lapland Longspur. It seemed to be hanging with a couple of Killdeer. It
continually feed in a short grass near the beach area eating seeds and then
moved to a parking area. That is where the Killdeer went and so did it. The
Killdeer just acted like it was a bitter cold day and did nothing, just
stood there. The Lapland Longspur feed still eating seeds along cracks in
the parking area and where weeds grown in cracks that held presumably a
seed bank. A nice surprise to see this bird this morning but then we do see
them this time of year along the lake, just once in awhile. No other
unusual birds to note this morning along that part of the lakefront. A cold
morning out with stiff winds from the northwest, very little sun with temps
around 50. Interesting, first saw them last year at Lakeshore State Park on
October 15. FOF winter hat, winter coat along with a scarf!

A few images from this morning at the link below of the Lapland Longspur
feeding if you care to view:

Good Morning. :)

I'm spending some time this week in my hometown. What are your favorite places to bird in the Green Bay/Brown County area, and what kind of birding excitement has been going on in those places lately?

Also, a special thank you to all of you who pointed me in the right direction back in June to find Yellow-headed Blackbirds. I was successful, because of your assistance. :)

Sincerely,

Lindsey McMahon, Kentucky

More ironic yet was that I was there yesterday and thought that I flushed a group of about 7-8 Red Crossbills. I didn't get a great look at them though and just discounted the sighting as probably being something else.

Subject: [wisb] Re: Fwd: Loss of birds
I think part of the issue could simply be the abundance of natural food
sources this year. I have plenty of birds around my property here in
southern Iowa County but few are coming to my feeders. The Goldfinches and
Sparrows are content to forage in our pastures and hang out at the small
creek we have out front. I’ve seen one or two at the feeders in the last
several weeks. I see and hear Titmouse but none go to the feeders.
White-breasted Nuthatches, Downey’s, Harry’s, Red-breasted Woodpeckers are
all around, but only occasionally seen on a feeder right now.
I think wild birds are happy to behave as wild birds since the weather is
nice and the food is plentiful.

Subject: [wisb] Franklin's Gull - McKinley Beach MKE Co. 10/8/17, some images...
Hi all,
Stopping at McKinley Beach this morning produced the highlight of the day,
a Franklin's Gull. Not an adult, but a cool bird at that as we do not get
many Franklin's along the lakefront. It was mixed in a flock of about 25
Ring-billed Gulls along the beach area. I was off a ways when I went
through the flock of gulls with my bins and spotted the blackish head, I
knew it was going to be something cool. It only hung around for about a
minute after I arrived and then took to the sky and headed south. A
beautiful day to be out with full sun, mild temps, and a nice breeze.

Images of the Franklin's Gull from this morning at the link below if you
care to view them:

Subject: [wisb] 8 LeConte's, Brooklyn SWA

I walked 3 areas ,at Brooklyn SWA. I found 2 adult LeConte's, south of Bellbrook Road, just west of the creek. They were back by the small cattail area.
Then I walked in from the south parking lot on Bellbrook. As I was walking across the field to get to the small ponds ,I flushed a Nelson's Sparrow, out of a goldenrod area. In the NE area, by the ponds, I had 2 adult LeConte's. Probably the ones Shawn Miller found.
Then I went north of Bellbrook, into the area that had the Smith's. A very soggy area and hard to get into. Not many birds out in the big open areas. But one area had 4 LeConte's. I could see 3 in one view, then another flew over there. One adult perched 15 feet from me and gave such great looks ,with great lighting.
In each spot, the adults would perch very close together.
That's atleast 14 different LeConte's I've seen this year. Kind of nuts.

Hi all,
A stop at McKinley Beach this morning in Milwaukee gave brief views of 8
Sanderlings feeding pretty much non-stop. Also present were the commonly
seen Ring-billed Gulls at this location. After only a couple minutes a dog
approached the area and all the birds flushed with the Sanderlings heading
south. Other birds to note along the local lakefront were many
Double-crested Cormorants everywhere, and ~ a dozen Northern Shovelers, and
a Ruddy Duck being at Lakeshore State Park. It was a overcast morning with
mild temps around 58 degrees with some steady winds and waves off the lake.

Sanderling images from today at the link below if you care to view them:

Every fall, the neighborhood Downys & Hairys seem to be looking for a winter roost - they have gone completely through our cedar siding. I tack up a bunch of reflective strips in the areas they frequent, and that seems to keep them away fairly well. You can purchase reflective tape at your local bird store, or just cut pieces from a reflective mylar streamer.

I’ve also put up a winter roost house on a nearby tree, though I haven’t seen it get much use - time to go clean it for winter!

I had the afternoon open, so I stopped at Lake Barney. I had 3 LeConte's, 1 up by the fence area and 2 over the hill and towards the lake. I didn't follow the one by the fence, but the other 2 were immatures. I had 4 Nelson's, all in the area of the SW part of the lake. I just walked the grasses, below the tall grass and above the real wet areas. 2 came out of the tall grasses, when I pished. I didn't see any Sedge Wrens or Common Yellowthroats. Lots of Palm Warblers up near the fence.
I stopped at a private field ,but it was getting wetter and darker. I saw 2 ammodramus sparrows, but was unsure of the ID.

Our wood siding has been regularly attacked by woodpeckers. The onslaught helped us realize that we had a carpenter ant problem, which we treated. We have also begun to replace the wood with a type of cement board that, when painted, looks just like our wood siding.

Subject: [wisb] RFI - Downy on house
Hi all:

My son in CT has a downy woodpecker coming to the same spot and pecking on his house.
It is not a log home, normal wood with paint. I informed him he may have some
type of wood borers in his wood. Not sure.

However: asking if anyone knows a substance or something to put on the spot and else where to stop the Pecker?

Thanks

Subject: [wisb] Birds & Beers on Oct 21 - a toast to South Milwaukee's new Bird City status
A Birds & Beers at Moran’s Pub in South Milwaukee (912 Milwaukee Ave, South Milwaukee) is planned for Saturday, October 21, 2017 at about 4:30pm (ish). Moran’s has a great selection of beers and offers a menu of sandwiches and soups.  

Also at 3 pm Bryan Lenz, Director of Bird City will be coming to Grant Park Picnic Area 5 for a brief Presentation of SM’s Bird City Status. You are all invited to come. After the presentation we’ll do a little birding through the Seven Bridges area, the beach, and/ or whatever areas we think might bring us some late fall migrants. And when we stop finding birds we’ll head to Moran’s Pub.

You should come because winter is right around the corner, and you might remember the winter of 2012-13 when Grant Park experienced a Patagonia Picnic Table effect. We’re due for another good year, so get familiar with the park (if you haven’t birded there before), for when those evening grosbeaks, crossbills, townsend’s solitaires, bohemian waxwings, and hoary redpolls show up in a few months. I’m personally hoping for a purple sandpiper. I need one for my Milwaukee County list.  

Hope to see you (and your birding and nonbirding significant others) on the 21st!

Wednesday, October 11, 2017 7:00 PM
Wehr Nature Center 9701 W. College Ave.
"Seeing the World Through the Eyes of Birds"
Presenter: Dennis Miller, Volunteer Naturalist Wehr Nature Center
Animals in general and birds in particular "see" the world in ways
which
are quite different than the visual capabilities of humans. This
presentation
takes the many characteristics of bird vision, as well as other animals, and
compares them with the vision capabilities of humans. It will then look at
what
methods can be used to illustrate how these non-human vision capabilities
can be
modeled to gain a better understanding what they actually mean in
practice. For
example, birds process visual information about 5 times faster than humans.
Using cameras and software processing, what humans would see flying into a
bush
and finding a place to land and what a bird likely sees can be illustrated.
While it’s not possible to actually "see" through the eyes of birds, our
technology can be used to at least get some understanding of what birds and
other animals see that humans do not.

On the off chance anyone doesn't know, this is a scam from a hacked email account. Since it's a "dmarc-noreply" address anyway (meaning a Yahoo account, virtually all of which have been hacked, hence the "noreply" solution,) you wouldn't be able to respond, even if you were naive enough to fall for it.

I'll be unsubscribing Bruce's address, and he won't be able to resubscribe his yahoo.com address. He'd need to set up a free gmail or other account to resubscribe (in case you see this, Bruce.)

Subject: [wisb] Black-backed Woodpeckers on the move
This morning I had anotherBlack-backed Woodpecker fly by my house amid a larger landbird flight, marking the 3rd I've had here since Sept 12 after none in the previous eight years of living at this residence. All have been moving south in concert with other migrants, only one of them stopping briefly. Thankfully they vocalize frequentlywhile in flight and are fairly easy to detect if within earshot.

My house aside, larger numbers have been moving down Minnesota's north shore since late August. Hawk Ridge is getting several daily, as are observers closer to shore there. Incredibly, outstanding birder Tom Reed tallied 25 in just two mornings last week as they movedsouth over Stoney Point, which is north of Duluth toward Two Harbors.

I don't think anyone has good ideas as towhy the uptick in numbers, if they will keep coming, or what the influxwill translate to this winter. Time will tell but for now everyone birding the northern half of the state should be on the lookout. Lowland conifer bogs, dying upland spruce, andrecently burned conifers are often preferred but they can be fairly general in their forest habitat selection.

Subject: [wisb] McMahon Road Wet Areas-Waukesha
In the NW corner of Waukesha county on McMahon Road, just west of Hwy 67
and the soccer fields has been a nice (one of the few) flooded farm field
and a pond that has hosted lots of ducks, herons, shorebirds, sandhills,
and other passing species. Well it hasn't helped that it hasn't rained,
but currently, the flooded farm area has been plowed on the south side of
McMahon, and on the north side, the pond is virtually drained & gone with
just a little water up on the NE corner... hosting a great egret and some
sandhills. The farmer of the farm field was frustrated that his field
wouldn't drain and was blocked on the north from draining by willows and
vegetation blocking the drainage, and don't call it a pond... it's a farm
field. Currently there are orange flags across the north pond area, so it
looks like maybe the drainage issue is being addressed, and if it rains the
next few days, it'll be interesting to see if then or ever the area returns
or becomes a good wet spot for finding puddle and shore-edge marsh birds in
Waukesha County.

I noticed the same decline in the number of squashed bugs on my windshield 2 summers ago, whenever I drove for 4 hours across northern Illinois.  There was  no windshield cleaning on my trips but it was required hourly in the 1950s and 60s.  Alerted, I noted very few squashed bugs in Dane County near marshes after driving several hours. 
It really worried me at the time and I wondered why no one was talking about it.  If the bottom of the food pyramid disappears, everything above it starves to death.

It was great fall moring to get out. I biked over to Lake Kegonsa SP. It seemed like all the birds were in softer warmer tones today. I had 6 warbler species, but most were Y-r and Palms. Cape May, Nashville, Tennessee, Magnolia and Black-throated Green were the others. The White-throated Sparrows were out in force.
Was hoping for some hawk migration ,a bit later in the morning. Just 10 Turkey Vultures ,all headed south.
Ended up wth 45 species in the park, and was hoping everyone got a chance to get out today.

Subject: [wisb] Pileated Woodpecker's Peculiar Demise Update
Hi all,

Thanks to everyone for all of your ideas regarding the cause of the death of the Pileated Woodpecker lodged in a vertical crevice in a white pine tree about 10 feet off the ground. I was able to climb up to it today and in answer to those who posted ideas, there was no evidence that a foot or any other part of the bird was somehow trapped in the tree. In answer to another post, there was no sign of monofilament line entrapping it. The crevice itself was not particularly sharp-angled so it did not appear that getting trapped in the crevice itself was possible. As some of you suggested, I am prone to believe that a predator (accipiter or mammal such as a fisher) somehow stashed if there. Sad but very curious. Thanks to all of you for your ideas.

Best birding,

Author of the article writes: "Insects pollinate the plants to produce much

corn is self-pollinating, with maybe a boost from the wind? Don't mean to
undermine the major thrust of the article, but still...

Hello Friends:   Had a wonderful trip to Horicon Marsh Saturday,
September 30, 2017.  Almost all the images below were taken on/near
highway 49, or in the Ledge Road vicinity.

Several hundred Sandhill Cranes, still a few White Egrets. Several
surprises.  Beautiful day.

The first 7 pics in this folder on Flicker, from this trip, include:   
Sandhill, Gallinule, Young Black Crowned Night Heron, Wood Duck in fall
color, and Blue Heron, having lunch.

Dark eyed Junco
Yellow-rumped Warbler
Palm Warbler
White-throated Sparrow
Swainson's Thrush

We had a group of birders from many locations. on a field trip, this morning. Kay, Dar, Stuart, you get the picture. Anyhow we started at Barney. We got 2 young LeConte's in the upper field. Then we over the hill and down to the wet stuff. We kicked up a Nelson's , and everyone got a good look. Stuart and I were out in the water when it flushed. The bird did end up in the tall grasses.
Then we went to a private field ,on Rutland-Dunn Road. Got great looks at 2 adult LeConte's. Stuart spotted a Nelson's ,and we got nice looks.
Those were the target birds, for the day. So a fun morning out. And I got a free hat out of the deal. Thanks Dar.

Good day. I have a copy of the newest version of the book noted in the subject above. But I forgot it in the San Francisco Bay area where I live most of the time.

Now I’m in Wisconsin.

I am ready to go to the Northwoods. But I’m seeking while in Milwaukee a review of the information I noted before I left ....& made my error of not remembering to pack this fine book.

Thus: Does anybody live on the north side or east side Of Milwaukee near Shorewood or Whitefish Bay and Bayside? If so may I stop by and look at your copy for a moment today or early Sunday morning? My cell number is below please. It takes texts or calls. Sorry for the favor.

Jeff Baughman and I have decided that the WSO Hawkwatch at Harrington Beach
State Park will NOT be held this coming Sunday (Oct. 1), due to the forecast
for unfavorable winds. They are projected to be out of the SSE, which would
not at all be conducive for migration activity.

The alternate date for this field trip is Sunday, October 8, so we will plan
to hold it then instead. Hopefully the weather and winds will be more
suitable at that time (starting at 8:00 AM).

Thank you to the kind responders to my message earlier today.
Here’s some solution options for birding in Vilas Co. and/or the lower U.P. nearby the Sylvania Wilderness Area:

1. I’ll use the “Haunts” book I have by Daryl Tessen (Thanks, Daryl!)

2. I’ll use ebird.org <http://ebird.org/> for nearby checklists.

3. I’ll use an App I found that the Vilas Co. Chamber published and is at the Apple iTune Store:

Subject: [wisb] Seeking, Please: Vilas County, WI Birders...Thank You
Please note I am visiting the Sylvania Wilderness soon that is adjacent to Vilas Co., one of WI’s most northern counties.
Thus, I’d appreciate anyone emailing me personally a note with one or more birder contact names/email #s/phone #s, as the
ebird checklist posts for Vilas Co. and adjoining, nearby Upper Michigan counties are few.

There’s no nearby Audubon chapter that notes birder contact names, etc….and/or birding “hot spots"

Of course, I realize a large % of the neotropical songbirds will have dispersed/migrated by the first week of October when I’m there
canoeing, but it’s worth investigating the avian dynamic before the trip begins.

Thank you (!) &

Lake Park was awesome yesterday. I received a text from Mike, that there

noticed they had flown to the north, so I made my way to the locust ravine.
Wow, that's where the birds were! For the next 5 hours I just walked in

Subject: [wisb] Little Muskego Lake (Waukesha County) - NO SIGHTINGS
Tom's email on Echo Lake reminded me that Little Muskego Lake is going
through a draw-down in the month of September.
http://www.cityofmuskego.org/885/Little-Muskego-Lake-2017-Drawdown

It started a few weeks ago and last time I was there (mid-Sept, at in-law's
house), there was not yet any detectable uptick in shorebird activity.

But...they were going to continue to draw down at a rate of 4" - 6" per day.

It might be worth someone more local to check out. There are not a lot of
large tracts of public access, but there are many narrow easements (usually
signed and numbered) that one can take to the shoreline and scope for
birds. Idle Isle Park does sit on the north end of the lake.

It will not be refilled until next spring, so who knows that this will look
like in the months to come, or say next March when the shorebirds come back
through.

Just passing along

Subject: [wisb] Burlington shorebirds (Racine County)
I went to Echo Park in Burlington in hopes of seeing the Yellow-crowned
Night-Heron which had been found by Lorri H. on 8/25 and seen again by her
on 9/24. She also mentioned in her eBird report that the lake was quite low
and good for shorebirds.
When I arrived, the lake was high and just about to spill over the dam, so
there were no shorebirds, and I could not find the Night-Heron. There was a
work crew at the dam, most of them watching a gentleman turning the wheel
for the spillway gate. He seemed to be closing it even more, so I left and
drove northwest on Pine and Chestnut Streets to Wagner Park. There is a
large shallow grassy area extending from the island that is nearly across
from Pleasant Ave, and here is where the shorebirds were hanging out.
I saw 75! Killdeer, 12 Lesser Yellowlegs, 2 Greater Yellowlegs, 8 Stilt
Sandpipers, 2 Pectoral Sandpipers, 3 Least Sandpipers, 1 Black-bellied
Plover, and 1 Dunlin.
When I returned to the dam area, the workmen were gone and the spillway gate
was open. Whether they intend on drawing the lake down low enough again for
it to be useful to shorebirds, and if so, how long that will take is
unknown to me.
I wouldn't be surprised if the Night-Heron is perched in a tree somewhere in
the area but I couldn't spot it while I was there.

Subject: [wisb] Brooklyn SWA, Dane Co.

I hiked the area north of Bellbrook Road, and north of the main field. You need boots to get into the field. This could be good again next April, for Smith's. In the tall grasses in the water were atleast 39 Bobolinks, and many Savannah Sparrows near the edges. Once out in the field I wasn't seeing much, but did flush 2 Ammodramus Sparrows. One was an immature LeConte's. The other probably was. I had good looks, but it was a duh moment. Wierd ,the center of it's back was black. Had a group of longspurs or pipits get up out of a plowed area, but I couldn't see them well enough. I also saw a couple Lincoln's, 1 Vesper, 2 Marsh and 3 Sedge Wrens.
I then headed to the southside of Bellbrook. Had my FOF W-c Sparrows (2 immatures) on my hike to a wet area. At the wet area I flushed an Am. Bittern and got great looks at a Nelson's Sparrow.

My wife and I were out and about and came across this wonderfully odd marked
Duck. He was in the company of a hen Mallard and very defensive. As we
approached the pond he came right at us and did not stop until we retreated.
As we watched a drake Mallard flew in and he was on him immediately. The

coloration and why it may be this way. Thank you for any responses.

Good afternoon,
This past week has been excellent at Lake Park in Milwaukee. I have tallied
18 warbler species there, with the majority being on the golf course. With
the weather staying the same for the next few days, I recommend going there
if you're interested in fall warblers. I have further details and photos at
the link below.

Subject: [wisb] Goose Pond

Mark Martin mentioned that the food plot ,north of the lake, looked good for sparrows. Although I didn't find any ammodramus sparrows, it's really nice to walk the trails. Early in the morning would probably be best. I did see Savannah, Lincoln's, Song, Swamp and Clay-colored Sparrows. I saw 25 + Bobolinks, which are one of the nicest looking fall colored birds. And they even like to perch high on the weeds. 500 Red-winged Blackbirds were in the plot. I flushed some pheasants and a Sora. Lots of goldfinches were also around. The biggest surprise was a very large Snapping Turtle ,in the path.
The White-crowned Sparrows should be in there in a week or two.
Anyhow, I highly recommend the walk. Steve Thiessen Stoughton Dane co.

Hi,

Tonight was an even bigger night at the roost.
A conservative 1200 birds entered the chimney beginning at 6:56.

Last one entered at around 7:20.

A couple from Saukville came to watch the spectacle. A good time was had by all. Including some neighbors who stopped to ask what we were doing.

I have a short and not very impressive video clip from when I first arrived tonight if anyone is interested. Many more Swifts joined the party but I was too busy counting to video.

Satisfied in Fredonia.

I haven't been able to get out lately due to illness, so the birds finally came to me. I just had a really nice little mixed flock, which included Tennessee, Bay-breasted, Magnolia and possibly a Nashville Warbler (although that might have been the Magnolia from a different angle,) a pair of Am. Redstarts, a female Scarlet Tanager, and a ton of Robins, which emptied the bird bath. One of the latter still had breast spots and scaling on the back. The tanager was a new "yard" bird. Slightly surprised I'd never had one in 12 years at this house.

I'd better get out there and refill the bird bath...

Hi all,
A Great Blue Heron was seriously fishing this morning at Greenfield Park putting on a great show while I watched from a distance. This young bird ate and ate with very few misses and twice captured 2 minnows at once while I was there. It eyed some of its food from a short distance and gave striking moves to capture its morning food, but sometimes just waited for the next small fish to swim by, then the capture. Other birds present at the park were just the typical birds that have been hanging around recent weeks. It was a nice morning to be out, with low winds, full sun and warm temps.

Some images of the Great Blue Herons feeding moments from today at this link if you care to view them:

Hi,
I Counted Chimney Swifts tonight at the migratory roost here in Fredonia.

First two swifts dropped into the chimney at 6:51pm.

Next 2 at 6:54.

Nothing then til 6:59 when 7 more dropped in.

At 7:04, all the rest decided it was time.

Like watching smoke go DOWN the chimney.

Between 7:04 and 7:20 I conservatively counted over 800 Swifts entering the roost.

My final number stands at 825.

Just WOW.

I am awestruck every time I witness this.

Subject: [wisb] Re: Ron Pittaway winter finch forecast
Yes, that is what he's saying. Northern Ontario, Quebec and NF are on track to have a fantastic finch year due to high cone crops there.
Since these species irrupt south only in years of poor cone crops, it is not likely that we in the western Great Lakes will see very much in the way of winter finches this winter.

It sounds like Redpolls may move south due to a more plentiful Birch crop, just not in great numbers and we'll have the usual resident Red Crossbills, but not much else.


Most of our winter irruptives come from Ontario rather than further west.

Because cone crops in western Ontario are apparently low (that line from Lake Superior to James Bay), these birds will move east to where the good cone crops are.

All-
Why wouldn't we see any activity?

Unless the assumption is that all irruptive species will migrate due east?

Does anyone have a sense for what this means for northern Wisconsin? The

on southeastern Ontario, New York, and New England. As a new Wisconsinite,
I'm not quite sure whether to expect the same finch bonanza here this

All-
Why wouldn't we see any activity?
In the opening paragraph:
"Cone crops are generally low west of a line from Lake Superior to James Bay extending west across the Prairie Provinces, British Columbia and Alaska."
Unless the assumption is that all irruptive species will migrate due east?

Basically this means that it's going to be a dismal year for seeing any irruptive species in the western Great Lakes region this winter.

Does anyone have a sense for what this means for northern Wisconsin? The
finch forecast is excellent and packed with information, but it is focused
on southeastern Ontario, New York, and New England. As a new Wisconsinite,
I'm not quite sure whether to expect the same finch bonanza here this

From: Tom Schultz <trschultz...>
Subject: [wisb] Report from WISCONSIN POINT for Wednesday 9/20:
Daryl Tessen just called me with another report from Superior. He said they
got 1-2 inches of rain last night from the storms that passed through. The
first hour was fairly active, including nine terns that came flying in.
They were mostly Commons, but the group got very excited when the last one
proved to be an ARCTIC TERN!

Lake Superior was still pretty high today, with the water nearly up to the
dune grasses again, but the wind has shifted around to the west so the
beachline should recede somewhat. This lack of beach has generally meant
very few shorebirds, but they did find a Black-bellied Plover, a
Semipalmated Sandpiper, and a Dowitcher (species undetermined).

Three Parasitic Jaegers were present today, although Daryl said they were
drifting off to the east for the most part. Overall they had just 40
species on Wisconsin Point today, with few ducks moving, and only about 4 or
5 warbler species. Sparrows were also in short supply today, with a few
White-throated and a single White-crowned.

He said the weather is supposed to be nice tomorrow and much of Friday, but
it sounds like there may be periods of rain and/or storms on Friday night
and Saturday – and possibly on Sunday.

Please note that the WSO's "Jaegerfest" field trip will run from Friday into
Sunday, and it is open to anyone. There is no need to be a WSO member to
attend -- just come to Parking Lot #1 at Wisconsin Point and join in the
fun! We use Motorola Family Band radios to communicate on the Point, so if
you have one, bring it along. We also have a number of WSO radios to loan
out each day, if you need one.

Subject: [wisb] Re: Lake Barney Fall Sparrows
Thank you for the map and directions. Went there today. Saw at least 10 killdeer in the flooded field, plus several other shorebirds, perhaps a yellowlegs. Also 5 cormorants in a dead tree east of the cornfield, and 3 Great blue herons in another dead tree. There were sparrows, but the sun was setting so I couldn't identify them. And flocks of blackbirds, Canada geese and some ducks far out in the lake.

Subject: [wisb] Report from WISCONSIN POINT - Tuesday 9/19/17
Daryl Tessen called again this evening with another report from Wisconsin
Point (Superior). There were several birders on the beach again this
morning, and their first highlight was a WESTERN GREBE. He said it was in
view offshore for about an hour.

Daryl said the winds weren’t bad initially, but by late morning they were
getting very strong out of the northeast, with pretty good waves rolling in.
The lake is about two feet higher this year, and he said the strong winds
had the waves rolling up almost to the beach grass! He said they had three
scoters in view for a time.

The winds made for steady jaeger activity with lots of sightings of
Parasitics. Daryl said around 11:30 a slightly smaller, lighter-colored
jaeger was spotted – and it proved to be a pale juvenile LONG-TAILED! He
said this bird made many fly-bys in front of them, and disappeared over to
the Bay for a while, but apparently it provided good views and photo-ops.

A little later another jaeger that was quite a ways out produced lots of
discussions/debates. Perhaps it was a Pomarine… but they weren’t certain.
Perhaps checking photos will help.

Daryl said there were fewer Common Terns and Bonaparte’s Gulls seen today,
but they did find an adult Great Black-backed. He said the day was much
slower for passerines, with about 50 species reported – including just four
warbler species.

They are expecting storms overnight tonight, with rain possibly continuing
into part of the morning. Speaking of which, Daryl said that the weathermen
are currently projecting nice weather for Thursday and most of Friday, with
rain expected on Friday night, and more chances on Saturday. If you are
coming to WSO’s Jaegerfest field trip on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, it
might be wise to be ready for rainy periods!

Subject: [wisb] Re: impact of Hurricane Irma on birds

A long shot but with all the eyes on the lake during Jaegerfest maybe some wayward pelagic species will show up in Superior this week.

I worry about the effect on some of the island endemics. Some of the smaller Caribbean islands were heavily damaged by this storm and I wonder how the local flora and fauna will survive.

I had 3 or 4 Nelson's Sparrows today, on some private land. Sunday night had a good push of birds. I didn't look at the radar, last night. Thought that I'd put this out there, so some of you will check your favorite spots.

Subject: [wisb] A note about forwarding other emails to Wisbirdn
You may have noticed that Arlene's post about the situation in Florida contained a lot of "gibberish". It's VERY important when forwarding an email that contains photos, graphics of ANY sort, etc., that you strip all of those out before hitting "Send", or the code will come through to Wisbirdn, which does not allow any images. (Similarly, Android devices tend to send messages in "rich" hypertext, rather than plain, which is why those usually come through looking like an alien language.)

Unfortunately, this may also trigger some email servers to treat that Wisbirdn message as "Spam", which will probably put a bunch of subscribers on the Error Watch report. Tom Sykes and I will have to keep an eye on that.


Lastly, I've noticed a bunch of messages to the list recently with no name/location appended to them. Remember, it is a requirement of the listserv that you put your name (first AND last) and location (preferably city/town and county) at the end of your posts.

Thank you for sharing this information. I visited Everglades NP this past
January and thoroughly enjoyed exploring and birding the varied habitats. It
saddens me to think of the destruction and the impact on birds, wildlife,
and especially the ancient cypress trees. Nature is resilient and it is
encouraging to hear reports of birds that have survived this massive storm.

We don’t have a full picture of Hurricane Irma’s environmental damage to
our state yet. But we know birds and other wildlife and their native
habitats are resilient in the face of natural disasters. Human activity
clearly compounds the negative impacts. We have assigned our science and
research staff to report on the 140 sites that Audubon Florida manages, and
we are collecting information from others. Here is part of what we know:
Many birds were displaced by the storm - birds from the Atlantic and the
Caribbean were carried to our shores by Hurricane Irma and are being spotted
around the state;
The upland habitats of Southeast Florida and the Keys were stripped bare of
foliage in some places and toppled in others. These areas are usually a
crucial food source for the Atlantic Flyway’s fall bird migrants, who rest
and feed here en route to the Caribbean and Latin America;
Water levels in America’s Everglades are dangerously high and a massive
seagrass die-off has been spotted in Florida Bay;
Some coastal islands and beaches are impacted by erosion;
Erosion and windfalls also damaged tree islands and mature hammocks in some
places;
Wastewater systems overwhelmed by the storm resulted in sewage spills in
some communities, and some waterways and beaches are closed;
Polluted water entering Lake Okeechobee from the north and the south is
quickly raising lake levels dangerously high. In an attempt to reduce lake
levels, some of this polluted water is being discharged to coastal estuaries
to the east coast of the state; and
Most coastal nesting birds had already fledged their chicks, but it's likely
some flightless baby birds drowned with the extreme storm surge.
Many people have also asked about Audubon’s staff, centers, and
sanctuaries:
Audubon's Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary remains closed and without power and
water. We lost many ancient cypress trees, some of which fell and crushed
sections of the boardwalk.
The Audubon Center for Birds of Prey in Maitland is without power but open
to the public (accepting cash/check only). The resident raptors and patients
made it safely through the storm.
The Everglades Science Center at Tavernier in the Florida Keys lost some
trees and equipment, but the building still stands.
Our Miami headquarters, Tallahassee policy office, and Coastal Islands
Sanctuaries office are open.
Our coastal staff, distributed throughout the state are on the job, despite
power outages and debris.
All staff, interns, and most volunteers have been accounted for, including
those who evacuated out of the state.
We are so proud of those staff and volunteers who showed up as soon as the
storm passed to begin clearing away debris and restoring operations. And
we're grateful for the others, who went out to check on the birds they care
about, with early reports of Burrowing Owls on Marco Island surviving the
storm, American Oystercatchers migrating through Northeast Florida, and
flightless Brown Pelicans alive in their nests on rookery islands in Tampa
Bay.

Executive Director, Audubon Florida

P.S. Hurricanes last for hours, but the work of protecting Florida’s water
and wildlife is a task that never ends. Thank you for being a friend,

Subject: [wisb] Re: impact of Hurricane Irma on birds
Thank you for sharing this information. I visited Everglades NP this past January and thoroughly enjoyed exploring and birding the varied habitats. It saddens me to think of the destruction and the impact on birds, wildlife, and especially the ancient cypress trees. Nature is resilient and it is encouraging to hear reports of birds that have survived this massive storm.

We don’t have a full picture of Hurricane Irma’s environmental damage to our state yet. But we know birds and other wildlife and their native habitats are resilient in the face of natural disasters. Human activity clearly compounds the negative impacts. We have assigned our science and research staff to report on the 140 sites that Audubon Florida manages, and we are collecting information from others. Here is part of what we know:
Many birds were displaced by the storm - birds from the Atlantic and the Caribbean were carried to our shores by Hurricane Irma and are being spotted around the state;
The upland habitats of Southeast Florida and the Keys were stripped bare of foliage in some places and toppled in others. These areas are usually a crucial food source for the Atlantic Flyway’s fall bird migrants, who rest and feed here en route to the Caribbean and Latin America;
Water levels in America’s Everglades are dangerously high and a massive seagrass die-off has been spotted in Florida Bay;
Some coastal islands and beaches are impacted by erosion;
Erosion and windfalls also damaged tree islands and mature hammocks in some places;
Wastewater systems overwhelmed by the storm resulted in sewage spills in some communities, and some waterways and beaches are closed;
Polluted water entering Lake Okeechobee from the north and the south is quickly raising lake levels dangerously high. In an attempt to reduce lake levels, some of this polluted water is being discharged to coastal estuaries to the east coast of the state; and
Most coastal nesting birds had already fledged their chicks, but it's likely some flightless baby birds drowned with the extreme storm surge.
Many people have also asked about Audubon’s staff, centers, and sanctuaries:
Audubon's Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary remains closed and without power and water. We lost many ancient cypress trees, some of which fell and crushed sections of the boardwalk.
The Audubon Center for Birds of Prey in Maitland is without power but open to the public (accepting cash/check only). The resident raptors and patients made it safely through the storm.
The Everglades Science Center at Tavernier in the Florida Keys lost some trees and equipment, but the building still stands.
Our Miami headquarters, Tallahassee policy office, and Coastal Islands Sanctuaries office are open.
Our coastal staff, distributed throughout the state are on the job, despite power outages and debris.
All staff, interns, and most volunteers have been accounted for, including those who evacuated out of the state.
We are so proud of those staff and volunteers who showed up as soon as the storm passed to begin clearing away debris and restoring operations. And we're grateful for the others, who went out to check on the birds they care about, with early reports of Burrowing Owls on Marco Island surviving the storm, American Oystercatchers migrating through Northeast Florida, and flightless Brown Pelicans alive in their nests on rookery islands in Tampa Bay.

We don’t have a full picture of Hurricane Irma’s environmental damage to our state yet. But we know birds and other wildlife and their native habitats are resilient in the face of natural disasters. Human activity clearly compounds the negative impacts. We have assigned our science and research staff to report on the 140 sites that Audubon Florida manages, and we are collecting information from others. Here is part of what we know:
Many birds were displaced by the storm - birds from the Atlantic and the Caribbean were carried to our shores by Hurricane Irma and are being spotted around the state;
The upland habitats of Southeast Florida and the Keys were stripped bare of foliage in some places and toppled in others. These areas are usually a crucial food source for the Atlantic Flyway’s fall bird migrants, who rest and feed here en route to the Caribbean and Latin America;
Water levels in America’s Everglades are dangerously high and a massive seagrass die-off has been spotted in Florida Bay;
Some coastal islands and beaches are impacted by erosion;
Erosion and windfalls also damaged tree islands and mature hammocks in some places;
Wastewater systems overwhelmed by the storm resulted in sewage spills in some communities, and some waterways and beaches are closed;
Polluted water entering Lake Okeechobee from the north and the south is quickly raising lake levels dangerously high. In an attempt to reduce lake levels, some of this polluted water is being discharged to coastal estuaries to the east coast of the state; and
Most coastal nesting birds had already fledged their chicks, but it's likely some flightless baby birds drowned with the extreme storm surge.
Many people have also asked about Audubon’s staff, centers, and sanctuaries:
Audubon's Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary remains closed and without power and water. We lost many ancient cypress trees, some of which fell and crushed sections of the boardwalk.
The Audubon Center for Birds of Prey in Maitland is without power but open to the public (accepting cash/check only). The resident raptors and patients made it safely through the storm.
The Everglades Science Center at Tavernier in the Florida Keys lost some trees and equipment, but the building still stands.
Our Miami headquarters, Tallahassee policy office, and Coastal Islands Sanctuaries office are open.
Our coastal staff, distributed throughout the state are on the job, despite power outages and debris.
All staff, interns, and most volunteers have been accounted for, including those who evacuated out of the state.
We are so proud of those staff and volunteers who showed up as soon as the storm passed to begin clearing away debris and restoring operations. And we're grateful for the others, who went out to check on the birds they care about, with early reports of Burrowing Owls on Marco Island surviving the storm, American Oystercatchers migrating through Northeast Florida, and flightless Brown Pelicans alive in their nests on rookery islands in Tampa Bay.

Subject: [wisb] Re: Searching for Ammo. Sparrows, Stoughton area
re LeConte's Sparrows, I just deleted one from my recent report, after eBirders found that the recording was an insect vocal, not a LeConte's.  Also noting our earlier discussion of photos I see the difficulty in good IDs.

I had the good fortune to get to walk a private wet field, which is between crop land. Lots of Swamp Sparrows ,some Song and 1 Ammodramus. I only got to see the small sparrow fly away twice. The weeds were high. But in this quality wetland, I kicked up 3 Sora, 10 Bobolink, 5 Marsh Wrens and 1 Sedge Wren.
I want to mention that it's still early for LeConte's and Nelson's Sparrows. The bulk of Nelson's will come before October and the bulk of LeConte's ,just into October. Just my experience, and I use the word bulk loosely.
Chuck and Marty got out earlier than I usually start looking, and they found a couple young LeConte's, Greg Hottman followed up and found a Nelson's. William M. .found a Nelson's at the end of August. We don't know if it's a weather thing (there was some great migation weather), or if there is a pattern. It will be interesting to see if young LeConte's show up early again. With ebird these are the types of things, casual birders report and will be relevant.
And thanks to some go getter birders ,with cameras. Maybe getting a handle on some ID points, for these young birds, we can put a name to them in the field. But checking Ammo. sp. is just fine. Steve Thiessen Stoughton Dane co.

Subject: [wisb] Report from WISCONSIN POINT (Superior)
This evening I received a call from Daryl Tessen, who provided me with an
update on what’s been happening up on the Point these past two days –
preliminary to WSO’s Jaegerfest field trip, which starts on Friday. Several
birders were out on the beach for much of the day.

Daryl said the jaegers have been fairly active, although they made more
appearances yesterday than today. Three Parasitics were observed yesterday,
and he said today there were two individuals hanging around – mainly this
morning. He mentioned that Peder Svingen had spotted and called everyone's
attention to a POMARINE JAEGER (juvenile) yesterday, but unfortunately I don’t
have any further details or photos on that bird yet.

The numbers of terns had apparently been low until today, when approximately
40-50 Commons were counted, along with a Forster’s and a Caspian. He said
that the variety of gulls has been less than hoped for, but they DID have
five SABINE'S GULLS in view! They were on the water for about 10 minutes,
then they flew east for a while – then later they returned. He mentioned
that an immature Great Black-backed had also been spotted, and a Lesser
Black-backed several days ago.

Daryl said that there were quite a few Blue-winged Teal present today, in a
number of flocks. Lake Superior is quite high this year, so the amount of
beach is greatly reduced. When a strong wind is blowing out of the
northeast, he said the waves come almost up to the dune grass! Probably as a
result of the reduced beach, the numbers of shorebirds observed has been
quite low this year.

He said that there were about 17 or 18 species of warblers observed today,
and about 90 bird species on the Point over the last couple of days. He
mentioned that anyone coming to Jaegerfest should try to bring some bread
(stale), if possible, and some bird seed might also be useful for attracting
sparrows. The group is hoping to get a Harris’s Sparrow once again this
year!

Birded along the Menomonee River in Wauwatosa today, from Center to

Very quiet. There were birds flitting high in the trees, difficult to
identify but I did see two BLACK-THROATED GREEN WARBLERS and my first
DARK-EYED JUNCO of the year.

Subject: [wisb] Lake Kegonsa SP/ LaFollette Co. Park

The radar was lit up last night, so I got out this morning. It was an all or nothing morning. I found a couple good waves of birds. Had my FOF Blue-headed Vireo, Y-r and Pine Warblers. I only ended up with 11 warbler species, but I missed so many up in the leaves. 2 Scarlet Tanagers were nice.
I saw a couple Broad-winged Hawks migrating. There should be some kettles today, somewhere.

Subject: [wisb] Hooded Warblers nesting at Whitnall Park - images
Good evening,
I was lucky enough to have an opportunity to watch several Hooded Warblers,
including one pair, at Whitnall Park this year. I was able to document
everything, with photos, from the first day the male arrived (5/11) until
the birds fledged the nest (6/30). Below is a link to the story.

Have a great night,

Thanks for posting and coming down Jim.
The jaeger was swimming and eating insects right along the shore when we
left. A little after 6:30. I had lost track of it ,but it ended up right
where it started.
Some photos were taken so an ID may be possible. Iwas looking at it only 20
feet away, and I wasn't sure which it was.
I acually went down there with the boat to do a pelagic trip around the
lake. The round tour never got done. Steve Thiessen Stoughton

Steve Thiessen just reported an immature JAEGER at Lake Koshkonong.
He was launching a boat at the KUEHN ROAD public boat access. The bird swam along shore within feet of him. It continued north. Possible Long-tailed or Parasitic Jaeger. Steve did not want to flush it for a better ID.


This boat launch is near Busseville off of 106 near south of Cty A

This is near Norm's Bar also.

my window so I put him on my feeder to keep an eye on him. The good news is
that he flew away 20 minutes later. Is there any chance this is a

The lake is best viewed from Cty M. It is on prison farm property. So don't
enter. We walk in across from Caine Road. The field just south of the mule
pastures is where the LeConte's have been seen. I believe the Nelson's
wasn't seen today, 2 or 3 LeConte's were and a Henslow's. A Merlin and
Peregrine were reported in the area. Some shorebirds come and go ,from the
wet pasture. Steve Thiessen Stoughton Dane co.
