VISITING BIRDER

 In late August, I was biking in Harrington Beach State Park when I spotted a man with binoculars. He was looking into the woods by Lake Michigan. Turns out, Mark Sulway had flown from across the pond (Wales, United Kingdom) and was bird watching in Wisconsin. Visit with Mark who was spotting ‘lifers’ near the village of Belgium for his world-wide list.

In autumn, David Schueler and his family walked the beach at Harrington Beach State Park on Lake Michigan near Belgium, Wisconsin. They found coal that could have washed up from a sunken schooner years and years ago. David also talks about a special geological feature in Wisconsin, the Niagara Escarpment. A closer look at the wave-tossed coal.  Like, comment and share this podcast from Spotting Wisconsin’s Facebook page.
