The Kirtland's Warbler and the Whooping Crane will be the focus of this 2nd annual, mid-May event offered by the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin. It's an opportunity to see both birds in one day, accompanied by the researchers that have been closely involved in these birds' recovery in Wisconsin. Make a weekend of it in Central Wisconsin, near the breeding grounds of these two species--and enjoy educational presentations, camaraderie, and rare bird sightings too boot!
