We’ll be meeting early – prior to sunrise to experience the dawn chorus of American Woodcock, Wilson’s Snipe, Sora and Virginia Rails, Sandhill and Whooping Cranes, and others birds of the marsh. We often find a selection of early warblers (Yellow-rumped, Yellow, Common Yellowthroat, Pine, and others), as well as Marsh and Sedge Wrens. The group will initially hike down a gravel road for a mile or two, before leaving to visit other sites via car caravan. These include several stops in White River Marsh, before continuing southward to other birding locations in Green Lake County. We typically finish our morning at Lake Maria. Bring along a lunch.


 Trip registration opens on April 4, 2024.
Initially this event will be open only to WSO members and our field trips are free. Non-members are able to sign up within 14 days of the trip if spots remain open on trips with attendance limits. Further details about trip logistics will be sent to registrants prior to each field trip.
