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.

Member Adult (12+): $35 | Non-member Adult (12+): $40

Member Child (7-11): $10 | Non-member Child (7-11): $15

OWBC: Birding at Lac Lawrann

September 4 @ 6:30 am – 11:00 am

Ozaukee Washington Bird Coalition Birding Field Trip at Lac Lawrann Conservancy

Lac Lawrann Conservancy is a 145 acre nature preserve contiguous with the 25 acre Royal Oaks Park. The overall property has 4.5 miles of trails crisscrossing 125 acres of upland and lowland hardwood forest, a Red Pine plantation in process of conversion into a seven acre oak-savannah habitat, the seven acre Rainbow Lake, two large ponds approximating 12 acres, eight acres of wetlands, and 10 – 12 cares of restored native grassland prairie. The overall topography typifies a Kettle Moraine landscape replete with glacial features and kettle ponds. The multi-varied habitats make for a dramatic landscape and good birds! Join us on Labor Day as we scour the Lac Lawrann property in search of both resident and migratory birds. The Lac Lawrann Conservancy is located in West Bend one mile north of State Hwy 33 on Schmidt Road.

OWBC: Breeding Season at Horicon Marsh Field Trip

August 6 @ 6:00 am – 12:00 pm

Ozaukee Washington Bird Coalition Breeding Season at Horicon Marsh Field Trip

Join veteran birder Carl Schwartz on a late summer field trip to Horicon Marsh. Special focus will be on finding any recently reported eBird rarities as well as sorting through a huge proliferation of all sorts of recently fledged waterbirds. Raptors will be prowling the marsh which should be chock full of ducks, rails, herons, both bittern species, two and maybe three species of terns, and shorebirds already returning from their northern breeding grounds. We will especially be on the lookout for resident Whooping Cranes and Black-necked Stilt fledges. Horicon Marsh has many hotspots which we will canvass as time and weather allow, e.g., Old Marsh Road, Main Dike Road, Ledge Road, the Auto Loop Road, Highway 49, Marsh Haven, and other places reported as exhibiting significant activity.

Meet-up will be at Park & Ride lot at the intersection of Highway 33 and Interstate 41 (just east of Allenton, address below). We will carpool from there as much as possible. Some hiking is likely so wear appropriate footwear and clothing; also bring a water bottle and sunscreen. This trip is sponsored by the Noel J. Cutright Bird Club.

Ages 18+ | Free
