Blue Grosbeak at Warnimont Park in Milwaukee County Wisconsin on May 3, 2024

I was on the lakefront in Milwaukee birding this morning at Lake Park when I heard that a pair of Blue Grosbeaks were being seen at Warnimont Park. This location was south of the golf course off the Oak Leaf Trail. When I arrived the female Blue Grosbeak was being seen but quickly was out of sight. After a few minutes the male Blue Grosbeak appeared high in a tree but then it moved around for the next 20 minutes, just giving looks. Then the bird perched again with a chance for a photo. Stunning bird!!! A rare bird for the state but it seems like we see them every year now. A big thank you to Greg O for finding this bird and getting the word out! The female was not again while I was there other than it’s first appearance when I arrived. A beautiful day with full sun, light winds and pleasant temps. Images were taken on May 3, 2024.
