Northern Shovelers, Shorebirds and more at Bradford Beach and Lakeshore State Park in Milwaukee October 3, 2014

I birded Bradford Beach and Lakeshore State Park in Milwaukee today around noon. Bradford Beach had 1 Black-bellied Plover, 1 Semipalmated Sandpiper and about 15 Sanderlings. Some high gusts of wind from the southwest made for an interesting setting for the shorebirds. Sometimes it was like a whiteout! Lakeshore State Park had a few new ducks. 2 Northern Shovelers, 3 Ruddy Ducks and a Gadwall. Some Palm Warblers were also present. Images were taken on October 3, 2014.
