Local Bird Watchers Enjoying Spring Sightings

(Horicon) It’s a great time of the year for bird watchers in the Dodge County area. Jeff Bahls with the Horicon Marsh Bird Club told us Thursday on WBEV’s Community Comment that our fine-feathered friends are making their way back from their winter migration. Bahls has already seen Tree Swallows, Red Wing Blackbirds, Yellow Rump Warblers and Phoebes. Robins have been around for a while and waterfowl are at peak migration. He says everyday and every south wind brings something new. Bahls joined us in advance of the Horicon Marsh Bird Festival which returns to the area this year between May 9 and May 13.
