    DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge, tucked along the Missouri River on the border of Iowa and Nebraska, is a very popular location among migratory waterbirds, hosting some of Iowa's largest concentrations of ducks and geese each fall and spring.  Shorebirds also visit DeSoto during migration, and several species of songbirds take advantage of the many wetlands, grasslands, and bottomland forests on this important area.  Come spend a morning with us enjoying the outdoors and learning about waterfowl migration!  This trip is free but advanced registration is required.  Binoculars will be available for use.

    Each November, tens of thousands of Tundra Swans descend from gray skies to loaf on Pool 9 of the Mississippi River as part of their migratory journey to wintering areas.  Join us as we travel back to northeast Iowa to witness this amazing Iowa birding spectacle!  Joining the Tundra Swans will be a variety of other migratory waterfowl including frequent Mississippi River visitors such as Canvasback, Redhead, and Lesser Scaup as well as several species of dabbling ducks like Mallard, Gadwall, and American Wigeon.  We may even get lucky with a glimpse at a soaring Golden Eagle!  This trip is free but advanced registration is required.  Binoculars and a spotting scope will be provided
