The Horicon Marsh is getting pretty wild! There is a lot of activity to keep an eye out for when you’re enjoying the great outdoors. Just yesterday we watched Great White Pelicans flying overhead and then saw a flock of Yellow-Headed Blackbirds land in a tree close by. This is a great time to bring your binoculars and a bird book to learn more about our feathered friends. Find a quiet location to just sit and enjoy spring at the marsh. Believe me, you won’t regret taking the time to do it. Just remember to keep practicing social distancing.

The marsh was also abuzz over the weekend as a Surf Scoter made a visit. I was lucky enough to be driving by and just wondering what all the commotion was about! I snapped a quick picture to share with you:
