Birding on the Milwaukee lakefront this morning was quiet. The only birds to note were some White-crowned Sparrows, adults and 1st winter birds and I also saw a few small flocks of Dark-eyed Juncos. The White-crowned Sparrows were feeding near a tall grass area and jumped out once in awhile for some weed seeds. I came across a few other birders and results were the same, a slow morning. With the strong northeast winds bringing in the colder temps I thought there might have been a couple of surprise birds this morning. Images of the White-crowned Sparrows were taken on September 30, 2015.
