At Frog Alley this AM. Shorebirds good but you have to walk to the far back of the dike system - where there is a channel to the river. You have to go through knee high grass on the dike in the far end. They did not cut back there but cut the rest of the dike. Best to go in late afternoon so the sun is behind you. I had trouble ID-ing shorebirds because they were against the glare of the sun in the morning when you have to face east. I probably missed some good ones. Had a "face off" with an Am Woodcock for 5-10 minutes. He was sitting on the path and didn't move until I was within 10 yards of him. Also saw a couple of Moorhen. 45 Species Nice breeze, low humidity and no bugs. #################### You received this email because you are subscribed to the Wisconsin Birding Network (Wisbirdn).
