Not too many pictures this summer, but have had a couple of very rare birds in Wisconsin. First up is a White-tailed Kite, that showed up at Crex Meadows SWA in late June. It was our 6th state record. I had only ever seen one briefly, in Florida several years ago. 7D mkll / EF600 F4 ll / 1.4x lll

I finally have something to post: Inca Tern!!! It's even not in the 'hypothetical list" of vagrants coming here (not my discovery!)!!!
There was one in March (I didn't have a time:() later reports for one on Big Island and now it's back to Oahu! Presumably the same bird! Single bird and first appearance on Hawaii!!!
I made ~ 300 shots, even after deleting the few out of focus and bunch of the same I'm with ~150 to evaluate... Here are the "best" for now!
