Among the many neat birds found in central Wisconsin each summer, two are very special: the Kirtland's Warbler and Whooping Crane. Two of the rarest birds in North America, both the Kirtland's Warbler and the Whooping Crane have been listed as a Federally Endangered species. Both species rely on habitat types that are somewhat unique on the Midwestern landscape. The Kirtland's Warbler requires areas of young Jack Pine managed with prescribed fire that are largely limited to the northern Great Lakes Region, and the Whooping Crane a mosaic of marshes and sandy grasslands.

Join us on this special trip to search for these two species, as well as the many other species that call central Wisconsin home in summer. We'll visit several different birding locations, including Necedah National Wildlife Refuge, to learn about the many different habitat types in this region. Other species we hope to see include Eastern Whip-poor-will, Sandhill Crane, Veery, Blue-winged Warbler, and Pine Warbler. 

Participation is limited, so register now to reserve your spot! You can view more details about the trip here. We hope you can join us!
