[wisb] Re: Brown, Oconto, and Shawano counties today

In Dodge county between Watertown and HWY 151, we saw about 50 Horned larks
one at a time. This means that about every 1/2 mile or less, there would be
one flying from or across the road. We never stopped to see if there was
anything else or any flocks, just kept chuggin along.

I started in Brown county. Near the brown/oconto line fields I saw about 14
Horned Larks. I went down the road farther and found a Red-tailed Hawk, and
many normal birds. After Pulaski,  I started on hwy 29 and had a American
Kestrel on the powerline. In no time, I was on 117 by Bonduel and Cecil
where I found 2 more Red-tails, and another Kestrel. I went around the lake
and found many Brown Creepers, and normal feeder birds. 
 
I soon came to the airport where I was in search of the eagles. After 5
minutes, a pair of Eagles flew by searching the open water on the river. One
of them landed in a tree and I watched it with my scope at about 200 yards.
I also found about 50 mallards and a Hairy Woodpecker by the river.
 
On the way home, I added more Red-tails and about 65 turkey's around some
farms in western brown county. 
 
Glad to see the Horned Larks coming North!
