Grant Park Warbler Walks welcomes newbies

May 15, 2013

Did you know that Wisconsin is the stopping ground for migrating warblers (small colorful songbirds)? A few species stay the summer – building nests and raising their young. Over 35 different species of warblers are spotted throughout Wisconsin every year. Another interesting fact is that warblers, like us, love South Milwaukee’s Grant Park.
A group of bird watchers will meet this Sunday (May 19) at Grant Park’s Wil-O-Way entrance at 8:00 am for the last of the migrating season Warbler Walks. We will be looking for these beautiful migrants and other birds. The group is made up of experienced birders and newbies. Whether you are in the experienced category or the newbie category or somewhere in between, birding with others is a great way to expand your knowledge, see more birds, and have a great time.
We welcome you to come join us. Just arrive by 8:00 am on the 19th, look for the people with binoculars and introduce yourself. Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring binoculars if you have them. If you have questions, please call Rita Wiskowski at (414) 766-0760.
