December Rare Birds of Wisconsin

Reposting this because as of this evening, we’ve arrived for the remainder of the holidays! This isn’t a risk we’d ordinarily take in times like these, but some logistics need to be tended to, one of which is running my partner’s CBC. So, here’s hoping for some great birds in the coming week!

This is an interpretation of the Wisconsin state checklist and records during the month of December, as well as local knowledge/recent sightings. On the big lakes, it’s good to be aware of Ross’s gull. Ancient murrelet has been found inland, though still still near a big lake in Dec. decades ago. Surprisingly, vermilion flycatcher has been spotted in the state in Dec. Other long shots, but feeder dreams possible this month…

  • black-throated sparrow
  • Scott’s oriole
