I wish I had a photo for all you Wisbirders, but how many cases have we heard of Mallards nesting in trees? There is such the case next door to a friend of my daughters, in west-central Oshkosh. The female mallard at the nest, in a horse-chestnut, of all trees, and about 8 ft. up, has been actively brushing her bill up and down the main trunk, wondering what the blazes she was/is doing. This is basically my only main report. Birding's been painfully slow, as I'm sure all of us are feeling the effects of. Unless your name is Daryl, and whoever else are the travelers of the WSO. Hope you guys strike rich sightings! Hardly anything else to report, haven't been up to the Bell's site in a while, though I did spend time at the folks house a week ago Monday. Birding was lousy if not poor. But the only consolation prize was a lone Common Tern, flew past the dock. Hopefully I can get out before June ends. My species number for June averages out to 75. Though I'm at 78 now, I still can use some easy grabs out in the country zones and maybe get 85. For now, 'til later, good birding Paul Bruce, Oshkosh Winnebago Co. #################### You received this email because you are subscribed to the Wisconsin Birding Network (Wisbirdn).
