The Mississippi and Rock 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
