Small/VIREOMigratory birds, like the Golden-Winged Warbler, need healthy forests to thrive. Some areas in Wisconsin are high priority habitat for song birds, and choices you make in the woods can make a big difference. Working with a forest professional is a great way to meet your goals for the land while promoting the conditions needed by song birds and many other wildlife species. Our partners are offering eligible landowners a free woods walk with a professional forester who can make recommendations for management activities on your land that can help improve migratory bird habitat AND meet your goals for your forest. They may even be able to help you access funding to complete habitat improvement on your land.
