On my way to the California Gull site I stopped at Comstock Bog from 3: 45 AM until 4:45 AM. Le Conte's Sparrow (2) were found on the east side of the bog as you come in from the old parking lot off Edgewood. Alder Flycatchers (2) were vocal as were Great Horned and Barred Owls. More birds singing than I expected for so late. On the way home I made a 12 minute stop just off ZZ in the Kettle Moraine State Forest north of North Prairie. Mosquitoes forced a quick retreat but not before hearing Hooded, Pine, Black-throated Green Warbler and a finding migrant Nashville. One Blue-headed Vireo piped up too. -- --------------------------------------------- Joe Schaufenbuel 5676 Regent St. Stevens Point Portage County, WI 54481 (715) 345-2788 "The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!'
