Butterfly sighting

Jul 9 2018

Todd Sima

Location: Lower Wisconsin River
Grant County

These were incidental sightings while I was doing bird bath videos. I have had a fantastic year with rare birds. While I was sitting out there today, I had a Juvi male Blue Grosbeak show up. Watching it take a bath on Wisconsin soil was a Hoot and a first time for me. The King Rail pictures are from back in May but the pair are still out there clicking/calling.

Special Note: The Lone Rock Bridge will be Closed Starting July 16th through August. Anyone going to the Avoca / Naba butterfly count will need to cross at Spring Green or Muscoda.
