Horicon Marsh-Redhead Dam, Horicon, WI, USA

Description

HUGE diversity of species in the Horicon Marsh! The Horicon Marsh is probably my favorite place to go birding because you never know what different species you might see! In this adventure I saw 31 species, most of them with photos, and of those 31, 5 were new to my life list: Black Tern, Yellow-throated Vireo, Blue-winged Teal, Redhead, and a Common Yellowthroat. I’m not counting this as a new species, but I also saw a rare Red-shafted Northern Flicker! (I’ve seen the yellow-shafted before)

Here is my eBird checklist of my birding trip: https://ebird.org/checklist/S69820372
