Logs sticking out of the water are important real estate to water birds and turtles wanting to dry off for awhile. So when there's a crowd, it's fun to watch bird bumping in our Wisconsin flyways.
The Mississippi River and its tributary, the Rock River, are important flyways for migrating birds that winter and summer in Wisconsin. And they are wetlands for year-round species. The Rock River's Horicon National Wildlife Refuge, managed by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, is often referred to as the "Everglades of the North."
The 24/7 4-K Mississippi River Flyway LiveCam in Wisconsin, operated by the Raptor Resources Project, provides wonderful views and understanding of the creatures around us and spectacular seasonal landscapes.
