Wisconsin Shipwreck Coast National Marine Sanctuary with Russ Green

In June 2021 NOAA announced the designation of the 962-square-mile Wisconsin Shipwreck Coast National Marine Sanctuary spanning Lake Michigan’s shoreline from Port Washington to Kewaunee. It will protect 36 shipwrecks that possess exceptional historic, archaeological, and recreational value. Historical research suggests that nearly 60 shipwrecks are yet to be discovered in the sanctuary. Join NOAA’s regional manager, Russ Green, for a brief overview of the sanctuary and discussion of ongoing projects both on and off the water.

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!

What’s Up With Wood Ducks? What Research Is telling Us about the Wood Duck Population, Nesting Boxes, and Disease Ecology In the Atlantic Flyway

Wood Ducks are a highly popular and beautiful species of waterfowl in both the Atlantic and Mississippi Flyways; and, as such, folks usually want to know how they are doing and where they are going. In the Atlantic Flyway, research is lacking on the status of artificial nest boxes with Wood Duck populations as well as on the possibility of pathogens lurking within nest boxes which could have a negative impact on the ability of hens being able to hatch their young. Join Jake Shurba of Clemson University as he shares with us the wonderful world of Wood Ducks and addresses whether or not nest boxes are a healthy environment for this species in the 21st century and management tools which could be used to minimize microbial impacts on Wood Duck eggs.

Jake Shurba is a graduate student affiliated with the Clemson University Kennedy Waterfowl and Wetlands Conservation Center in South Carolina. Headquartered at the Baruch Institute of Coastal Ecology and Forest Science along the Waccamaw Neck, the Kennedy center is the first endowed waterfowl and wetlands conservation center along the 3000 mile Atlantic Flyway.

Join us by Zoom at 7 PM on Wednesday February 2, 2021. This program is being presented by the Mequon Nature Preserve and is co-sponsored by the Ozaukee-Washington Birding Coalition, a consortium of environmental organizations consisting of the Mequon Nature Preserve, the Friends of the Cedarburg Bog, the Riveredge Nature Center, and the Lac Lawrann Conservancy.
