Winter Birding

Are you looking for the first robin or bluebird of the year? The Waterman
Creek and Little Sioux River valleys are the perfect place to spot these
typical summer visitors along with a variety of winter guests. Join bird
expert, Lee Schoenewe and others in a birding event hosted by the O’Brien
County Conservation Board.

Meet at the Prairie Heritage Center at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 5 for
a day of winter birding. Participants will carpool to some excellent
habitat areas in the valley looking for winter species. After a short lunch
break around noon, another carpooling adventure will occur as participants
drive a river route for the annual Bald Eagle Survey.

Come for the morning, the afternoon, or for the whole day. Bring a sack
lunch to enjoy during a break in the action around noon. People who are
interested in participating only in the survey route can join up with others
around noon at the Prairie Heritage Center.
