Shawano / Waupaca County - Night sounds of Navarino State Wildlife Area

Join Atlas leaders Tom Prestby, Stuart Malcom, and Erin Giese in taking in the night sounds of one of the region’s most diverse areas. We’ll begin in the evening listening for rails, bitterns, and other marshbirds and then take in the display flights of American Woodcock and Wilson’s Snipe. Afterward, we’ll search for nocturnally active marshbirds and owls while taking in the chorus of several species of frogs. Bring a flashlight.

This event is part of Nocturnal Atlasing Week, a fun way to learn how to collect nocturnal data for Wisconsin Breeding Bird Atlas II.

When: April 21, 6:30 p.m.
Where: Navarino Nature Center parking lot on Lindstien Rd.
