Wildlife Update: January 2, 2020
But just because it is wintertime now, doesn't mean there are not still birds to see at Crex Meadows! Our winter residents continue to show up, and are spotted moving around throughout the day!
Within the last week we have gotten reports of Snow Buntings, Northern Shrikes, Rough-legged Hawks, and more!
We have also had a report of a Golden Eagle on Crex! So be sure to keep your eyes open for this rare sighting!
There are several hunting & trapping seasons open in Wisconsin, so be aware that you may see hunters out on the wildlife areas as you drive around. Check the WI DNR website for season dates.
Birds spotted in Crex Meadows, Fish Lake, Amsterdam Sloughs, and Grantsburg Area within the last week:
Great Horned Owl
