Ducks of Wisconsin Field Identification Workshop

March 5 @ 6 pm – 8 pm and March 9 @ 7:45 am – 12 pm

Ducks of Wisconsin Field Identification Workshop

Learn all about Wisconsin ducks with guest speaker Jeff Bahls, President of the Horicon Marsh Bird club, Wood Duck Society board member, and 2018 recipient for the Wisconsin Society of Ornithology bronze Passenger Pigeon award! As an avid birder and duck hunter, Jeff has a wealth of information to share with bird enthusiasts on the life history of some of his favorite duck species, where and when to find them and how to identify them in the field.

This workshop is a two-part series. The first portion on March 5 will be an indoor lecture-discussion held on-site at Riveredge Nature Center with the option to join virtually over zoom. For the second portion on March 9, participants will travel to Horicon Marsh Wildlife Area, a highly diverse bird spot in WI and the largest cattail marsh in the US, where Jeff will lead a tour of Horicon’s duck ‘hot spots’ and highlight duck species identification techniques in the field.

The field portion will be 4 hours long and will be held entirely outdoors. It will involve walking and standing on grassy or graveled trails. Be sure to dress for the weather and in layers. Wear suitable walking or hiking shoes.

Transportation to Horicon Marsh will not be provided by Riveredge. Participants will meet at the Horicon Marsh Education Center at 7:45 am on March 9, prepare (use bathrooms, etc.) and then leave for the walk at 8:00 am. Punctual arrival is important as it may be difficult to find the group once the walk has begun.

Ozaukee Washington Bird Coalition

March 2 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Ozaukee Washington Bird Coalition

Tune In: Birding by Ear

Tune In! Just as it sounds…pun intended. Join DNR wildlife educator, Liz Herzmann, to practice identifying birds by their song. We all know birds can be beautiful by sight, but have you ever really taken the time to learn their songs and calls? Whose call sounds like “cheeseburger” or “drink your tea”? Each species has unique sounds that make identifying birds by ear a unique and challenging way to birdwatch. Many expert birders do not even need a pair of binoculars as they can identify nearly all bird species by ear. Learn about the difference between songs and calls, what to listen for and test your own skills. This program is great for all skill levels and will be a perfect way to prepare for the upcoming spring season as the birds begin calling!
