Birding at the Milwaukee Community Garden on November 23, 2015

One of my birding stops today was the Milwaukee Community Garden off of Rawson Ave in Milwaukee County. I hung out there for a while and enjoyed all the different species of birds picking and eating weed seeds off the dead stalks. The roads were open and I made a few passes though there. No sign of the Northern Shrike but a few Red-tailed Hawks were in the area. All these birds work way to hard! Images were taken on November 23, 2015.

    Jim, regarding the White-crowned Sparrows, it’s the adults, of either sex, that have the white crown-stripes. The immatures — what you have labeled as females — do not.
