Migratory Birdwalks must be self-guided this year…

Our favorite spring activity, MIGRATORY BIRDWALK, has been temporarily suspended due to the challenges of social distancing for facilitators.

Please don’t hesitate to enjoy bird watching individually. Binoculars and comfy shoes/boots suggested.  A pocket guide or phone App such as Sibley’s, National Geographic or I-Bird are helpful ID tools.  We expect the species counts to continue to increase over two to three weeks, as migrants from South and Central America are beginning their big push through to breeding grounds here and in the Canadian boreal forest.

Those of you wishing to bring more bird life to your yards may wish to visit Wisconsin Audubon’s website:

https://www.audubon.org/native-plants

After typing in your zip code, you will be given a list of native plants known to be beneficial to birds in your area.

    Betsy,
    Way to go continuing all the Bird watching quests in that beautiful park.
    So enjoyed the Mothers day walk in 2014.
    Thank you for getting people out in the park to enjoy the beauty in Nature.

    All the Best!
    Kim Hall
