WI Rare Birds: 2nd Week of April

Some exciting rarity records this week in state history, and several signaling migration!

  • Pacific loon: consider this the time to start scoping the lakes for PALO!
  • king eider
  • gray partridge: I know I’m cheating because this is a year-round bird, but one that you usually have to intentionally chase. It’s also introduced, so I don’t know how excited you get about it unless you’re an ABA lister.
  • black-legged kittiwake
  • American three-toed woodpecker
  • curve-billed thrasher
  • green-tailed towhee
  • black-throated sparrow
  • lark bunting
  • black-headed grosbeak
