Chuck Henrikson’s Birding Report From UW–Madison Arboretum

“This morning I saw 30-40 each of Cedar Waxwings and American Robins at that spot. I also saw Blue Gray Gnatcatchers, Gray Catbirds, American Redstarts, Eastern Bluebirds, American Goldfinches and several other species. Wherever you go birding in the early morning try to find a spot where the sun is at your back and shining on a bank of trees and/or bushes. That’s often where you’ll find birds.” Read Chuck’s Weekly Birding Report #22.
