Wisconsin and Lake Park Birders, Lake Park Duck Watches: Saturdays 11AM - 1PM Fall 2009: . . Oct 24 . . Nov 14 . . Dec 5 Gather on the EAST side of Lincoln Memorial Dr, north of Bradford Beach. The first Lake Park Duck Watch of the year yielded Scoters, Scaup, Redhead, Coots and Mallard on Lake Michigan offshore Milwaukee County. On land we saw a few Warblers, many Sparrows, a Pewee, and a House Wren. In between, 3 Dunlins slowly probed the mud at the Coast Guard Impoundment. After scoping the Scoters at North Point, Judith Huf and Paul Hunter carpooled to the Coast Guard Impoundment and pointed out the Dunlins to Betsy Abert who happened to drive by on her way from South Milwaukee to see the Scoters at North Point. She suggested Sheridan Park. The brush piles in the scrubby woods near the archery range fluttered with avian activity. (We did NOT see Steve Lubahn or a Rock Wren. ;-) --- Paul Hunter, Whitefish Bay, Milwaukee County http://home.roadrunner.com/~phunter1/lakeparkbirds.html http://lakeparkbirds.blogspot.com/ ===================================================== North Point - Bradford Beach: 1 Surf Scoter 3 Black Scoters 1 Redhead 50 Greater Scaup 1 DC Cormorant 100 Ring-billed Gulls 10 Herring Gulls (Sanderlings per Jym Mooney) 4 American Crows 2 Palm Warblers 6 Song Sparrows 2 Chipping Sparrows 3 DE Juncos (SC) 12 American Goldfinches Coast Guard Impoundment 70 Mallards 2 Cooper's Hawks 3 Dunlins South Shore Marina 8 Mallards 2 Am.
