Birds of Horicon Marsh
The interior of Horicon Marsh is home to a wide variety of marsh birds. It is home to ducks and geese as well as pelicans, herons, egrets and cormorants. However, the scattered woodlands provide home to a great array of songbirds that can be found during the spring and fall migration as well as summer nesting populations. A close look may reveal a range of colorful songsters hiding among the dense foliage.
