Lake Geneva, WI
Saturday 22 June 2019 70 °F
The Griffin family reunion brought us up to Lake Geneva, WI for a great day of hanging with family! I did, however, see some birds along the way so read on-
The highlight of a day was taking a boat tour around Lake Geneva.
Some of the houses were disgustingly huge (yes, single-family summer houses):
The high point of the boat ride for me was at the end when I got great views of a BLACK TERN flying around, hunting the waters of Lake Geneva! Too cool! By far the best looks I have ever gotten of this species.
Later, from my aunt’s deck I spotted a number of birds including this male BALTIMORE ORIOLE:
Some BROAD-WINGED HAWKS, very nice to see:
And a male RUBY-THROATED HUMMINGBIRD:
It was a wonderful day with family, and birds! Bird-of-the-day to the Black Tern with runner-up to the Broad-winged Hawks.
Stay tuned, tomorrow I am flying out to Chautauqua, NY for seven weeks of music camp!
