Navarino SWA: Night Sounds Shawano County
Contact Tom Prestby at: prestby@uwgb.edu, 414-614-0798

Meet: 6:30 pm at the Navarino nature center parking lot off Lindstien Road.  Join 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. This is an excellent way to learn how to collect nocturnal data for Wisconsin Breeding Bird Atlas II. Bring a flashlight.
