Shorebirds at Lakeshore State Park in Milwaukee Wisconsin on August 23, 2017

Stopping at a few locations this morning along the lake, Lakeshore State Park was the highlight with some beautiful shorebirds. The beach there gave nice views of the birds as they fed. Birds included a Least Sandpiper, mostly Semipalmated Sandpipers, a couple Semipalmated Plovers and a Sanderling. Images were taken on August 23, 2017.

    Thanks for the great photos. Your pictures have really helped me find and identify birds that I never would have seen on my own. As an example, today I saw and photographed the semipalmated plover and the semipalmated sandpiper. Wow! Two new birds for me.
