Catch the beginning of fall shorebird migration at the nation’s largest freshwater marsh! Horicon Marsh is the second best birding hotspot in the state with 279 observed species. Breeding birds such as Black-necked Stilt, Common Gallinule, and American White Pelican may be seen alongside early shorebird migrants such as Short-billed Dowitcher, Stilt Sandpiper, and Wilson’s Phalarope. Bring a scope if you have one; extra binoculars will be available.

Where: Meet at the Horicon Auto Loop Parking lot (43.630161, -88.669179) just off Highway 49 on the northwest side of the marsh.
