[wisb] More bird hikes at Harrington Beach in Ozaukee County

The first of eight scheduled bird hikes was held last Saturday at Harrington 
Beach State Park -- along the Lake Michigan shore in Ozaukee County. Long 
regarded as a bird-watching hot spot, the park lived up to its reputation 
with more than 60 species recorded during the walk or shortly before and 
after. You may already have seen Andrea Szymczak's post about the nine 
warbler species she recorded there.

Volunteers from the Milwaukee Audubon Society and the Riveredge Bird Club in 
nearby Newburg are conducting a series of Saturday morning walks to look for 
and listen to resident and migrant birds in the park. The 90-minute walks 
will begin at 7:30 a.m., leaving from the observatory area at Puckett's 
Pond, and work their way east toward Quarry Lake and the Lake Michigan shore 
in order to explore a variety of habitat.

The walks were conceived to serve users of 65 new campsites at the park, 
located just east of I-43 and south of County Highway D, but will be open to 
all park visitors. Standard park entrance fees will apply. Walks will be 
leisurely and geared to all experience levels; children need to be 
accompanied by adults.

Participants should dress for the weather and insect conditions. A pair of 
binoculars will make for a much more rewarding experience. If you have a 
birding field guide, bring it along.

Walks will be held on these Saturdays:

Aug. 14
Aug. 21
Sept. 4
Sept. 11
Sept. 18
Oct. 2
