Join us as we look for spring migrants at this Capital Springs State Park -- Hog Island, a recent addition to Wisconsin’s Favorite Bird Haunts.


Location: Capital Springs Park

Ebird hotspot:


We'll meet in the free parking lot near the end of Libby Road right before the Lake Farm Boat Launch. (Parking in the boat launch requires a permit.)


This birding hotspot has a variety of habitats -- prairie, woods, lakefront, and wetland. Be sure to wear appropriate footwear for wet grass and some potentially damp areas. We'll walk approximately 1.5 miles on mown trails with some uneven terrain.


Weather: Rain or Shine (unless lightning)


 Trip limit: 20

 Trip registration opens on March 14, 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.
