We recently spent 10 days in Holcombe, Wisconsin vising my parents. There isn’t much to do in Holcombe besides boat and eat and drink.
Wisconsin deep fried cheese curds. Life doesn’t get much better….
But, the bird watching is pretty good. My parents have various types of feeders scattered around, and we saw some beautiful birds.
We saw male and female cardinals most days.

We also saw male and female orioles (the birds, not the baseball players) every day.
And, we saw finches. There were yellow finches every day.
Along with purple finches most days.
But, the best birds were out on the lake. For example, we saw quite a few blue herons.

And, check out this bald eagle.

Robert says I’m going to be a birder in my old age, but I think I’m already there…..
Lisa has a degree in biology and another in law and has spent the last 20 years working as a patent litigator. She is a voracious reader of young adult dystopian fiction and watches far too much bad tv. She loves pretty much anything to do with zombies, and doesn’t think there is anything weird about setting an alarm at 6 am on a weekend to stumble to a pub to watch her beloved Chelsea boys.
Robert has had many professions, including a chef, a salesman, an IT guy and most recently, a stay at home dog dad. He speaks Italian and hopes to learn Spanish on this trip. He loves nothing more than a day spent sailing, hopes to do more scuba diving, and rues the day he introduced Lisa to football (i.e., soccer).
It was great to see you both in Chicago. Sorry that I did not have any exciting stories, but you guys made up for it with yours! Hoping we cross paths in PV. Those are great bird pictures. My bird pictures usually involve me sticking up my middle finger in Rossi’s after 1 in the morning.
I am wired in on the blog now, so will be more up to date with you guys. I may even figure out how to open up snapchat (baby steps).
It was great seeing you too. Why does it not surprise me that your “bird” pictures would be a little different?
