Wildlife Update: April 19, 2021
Spring is here in the Grantsburg area! We had a few days that were abnormally warm for March and April, including one day in the 80's and a couple in the 70's. We have since moved back into normal spring weather, with temperatures mostly in the 40's and 50's and many days of rain.
Bird migration is in full swing, with many different species of waterfowl coming through, some early songbirds and shorebirds, and many others!
Highlights from this week include: Yellow-rumped Warbler, Eared Grebe, Red-necked Grebe, Bonaparte's Gull, and Horned Grebe.
Birds spotted in Crex Meadows, Fish Lake, Amsterdam Sloughs, and Grantsburg Area within the last week:
American Black Duck
American Tree Sparrow
Great Blue Heron
