Kirtland’s Warbler In Wisconsin
In this video, learn about the Kirtland’s Warbler and what is being done to protect it in Wisconsin.
The Kirtland’s Warbler is a North American songbird that nests in young Jack Pine forests. The bird is found in normally in Michigan and occasionally in northwest Ohio. In 2007, the bird was discovered in Wisconsin.
From the video:
Much of the Wisconsin land that hosts the warbler belongs to Plum Creek Timber Company, one of Wisconsin’s largest private landowners — the birds found enough Jack Pines within a Red Pine plantation to nest.
To me, the most important takeaway from the video is that the Plum Creek Timber Company is working with wildlife experts to create habitat for the birds. I like to see people and organizations working with nature and not against it.
