Doing some birding in the South Kettle Moraine today the highlight was a FOY Eastern Phoebe. It was at Paradise Springs off in a distance actively feeding, eating some type of insects above the water, the few that were there. The short time I saw it, it was perched most of the time, I’m sure waiting for some insects to come around. Other bird species to note out that way, a pair of Sandhill Cranes off in a distance, and a couple of Turkey Vultures up high, pretty quiet overall. It was another cold day with steady east winds, the sunshine hardly felt warm. Images were taken on March 25, 2018.
