Meet: 7:00 am (each morning) at the first beach parking area along the Moccasin Mike Road (Lot #1), which leads to Wisconsin Point. Weather plays such an integral part in birding this area, in fact, the worse the weather the more incredible the birding could be. So prepare for the possibility of wet, cold weather as well as typical cool or mild fall temperatures along lake Superior. Participants may want to bring old bread, popcorn, beef suet, etc. for “chumming” for gulls.  The beach offers opportunities to see a variety of waterbirds – including various gulls, Parasitic Jaegers (and occasionally the other two jaegers as well), ducks, loons, grebes, and raptors – and the trees along the Point can also be good for warblers, vireos, thrushes, and other migrants.  A scope is helpful, and you may wish to bring a folding chair for sitting.  If you are staying in a motel, make sure you book your reservation early!
