97-7 Country WGLR

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

Ornithological Society.
