My first birding stop of the day was the Fox River Sanctuary in Waukesha to see how the warbler action was. There were a few warblers present but they were all high up feeding. A flash of brilliant red caught my eyes, it was a male Scarlet Tanager. It was high in the tree tops when I found it. After a couple minutes of watching it, flew down to the river and perched on a tree branch that fell in the river. It sang for about 2 minutes in front of me at eye level and then flew back up in a big oak to do some more feeding. It was beautiful! It was a cloudy morning with low winds and mild temps around 60 degrees. Images were taken on May 13, 2023.
Follow my adventures!
