Birding in Wisconsin and Birding in Minnesota

I was afraid of being pecked to death by those gigantic pink swallows in the picture above. Lucky for me they were friendly pink swallows . . . and FAKE pink swallows. That picture was taken in Milwaukee, WI on the last days of my bike tour. So were the next three.

Peacock on a railing. (A peacock is a bird, right? Or is it some kind of half-bird/half-plant creature?)

I’m back in MY Town now, and I’ve been catching up on Cycle365 reading. It’s kind of late to be commenting on most of it, but I can safely say that your words and pictures are all up to the high standards of this fine website. HUZZAH!

Just because I’m home doesn’t mean I’m done bird hunting. Nosiree! Here’s what I found today.

Here is a bird feeder hidden in a thicket of woods.

This diorama is carved out of a tree. It includes three wooden eagles, a wooden owl, and a wooden Woody Woodpecker. You might be able to see a real flesh & blood sparrow on the head of the eagle on the right.

Quite a sizeable litter of baby geese.

As a famous celebrity chef, how could I NOT include a picture of the bird I grilled last night?

Tomorrow I’ll be heading to Iowa again for my dad’s oncology appointment. I’ll bring my bike and hopefully I’ll find some Iowa birds. I’ll be back by the 28th to post the June Challenge. That should give everyone time to plan for that most challenging (and most unique) of challenges. Get ready.

Hi. My name is Greg and I ride my bike a lot. That is to say, I ride my bike almost every day. I go on long rides and short rides. Sunny rides, cloudy rides, and rainy rides. I like commuting, errand-running, day-tripping, overnighting, and touring on my bike. I ride on city streets, highways, gravel, single track, and snow with equal enthusiasm. Sometimes I ride fast and sometimes I ride slow. I try to keep my feet on the pedals at stop lights and I do not dismount when I hop up on a curb. I have a roadie bike, a mountain bike and a touring bike. I try to accept any challenge a bike ride can throw at me without complaint. But I don't like bugs.

    You’ve been on a cycle tour? Paid homage to the GBP state? Boy am I way behind, better check out Cycleblaze. P.S. What happened to your Youtube vids?

      Yeah, that’s it–I paid homage to the Packers. I couldn’t keep up the Cyclevlogging. It seems my attention span is more suited to those 20-second videos.
