It was a rainy day in December, hardly a nice
day for counting birds. But Fennimore’s
first-ever Winter bird count found some typical
species of birds that you’d find in southwest
Wisconsin. Retired D N R Conservation Warden
Chuck Horn, coordinated the event.
Also observed was a barred owl, mourning
doves, nearly 150 turkeys, and many of the
typical birds you would see at a bird feeder
this time of year. That would include chickadees,
cardinals, nuthatches, woodpeckers and
blue jays. Horn says there were some surprises.
The information from the first Fennimore area
bird count will be forwarded to the National
Audubon Society and the Wisconsin
