This morning I went to the Forest Beach Migratory Preserve between Belgium & Port Washington, WI. It's located just south of Harrington State Park.
The reason I went there is because there have been sightings of a large Crossbill flock. I haven't seen a crossbill in person before, so I thought it would be a good chance to add that to my list.
However, I didn't see any.
I did see a Purple Martin .. several, in fact.
There was a pond - and several ducks. I didn't identify them, ... but here are some pictures.
On the way walking back to the van, I was able to get a couple of photos of the Martins in trees and on a line. I'm pretty sure they are Martins .. immature Males.
The following are a few Martins that were in a Pine right next to the Parking Lot.
I was disappointed that I didn't see any Crossbills, but atleast I saw the Martins.
