Noah and I birded the Sheboygan lakefront again today. Although we found less waterfowl diversity than yesterday, the calmer water allowed us to see many more individual ducks. There was an incredible number of Common Goldeneye. At dusk we made a brief visit to Kohler-Andre State Park and had a brief look at a NORTHERN SHRIKE off the main road in the south end of the park. Also, earlier in the day we saw at least 150 SNOW BUNTINGS in two flocks off County A north of Hwy 23 (between Greenbush and Glenbulah). They were feeding on what looked like weed seeds (velvet leaf?) in a field full of these weeds. These were the largest groups of SNBU I have ever seen in this area.
