Conserving Wisconsin’s Migratory Birds: From the Tropics to your Backyard - Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center
As threats to bird populations increase, the need for focused conservation efforts is greater than ever. Join Ryan Brady, WDNR Research Scientist, as he discusses his work with the Wisconsin Bird Conservation Initiative and highlights some of their important projects across the state, with special emphasis on migratory birds such as warblers, thrushes, vireos, orioles, hummingbirds, tanagers and more. Recognizing that preserving bird populations is something to which we all can and should contribute, Ryan will also specify habitat improvements and other actions that everyone can implement to help birds in their own backyard.
