For anyone new to the list (or to the state birding hotspots,) another way to get to the top of the East Bluff at Devil's Lake St. Park is from the Steinke Basin parking lot off County DL on the northeast side of the park. It's a pretty straight and mostly level hike in (until near the end, when there's a bit of an ascent.) Probably a mile or so each way, not counting hiking along the bluff top. (http://www.dnr.state.wi.us/org/land/parks/specific/devilslake/map.html) Once there's sufficient snow, this becomes a cross-country ski trail, though. Also, much of Steinke Basin is open to gun deer hunting - there is a supplemental anterless-only hunt next week (Dec. 9-12,) so bear that in mind and wear bright colors if going next weekend.
