Birding in Northern Wisconsin

Wisconsin has a rich diversity of bird species, with more than 400 species recorded in the state, including abundant eagles, egrets, herons, and kingfishers, and a long list of migratory birds. The Wisconsin Society of Ornithology has an in-depth checklist of Wisconsin birds. They host field trips, bird clubs, programs, and more. We recommend scouring their website as it’s a great resource for birdwatching tips, resources, and tricks. The Cable area is conveniently near so many birding hotspots and pristine wildlife areas. If you want to stay close to “home,” you can relax by the lakeside at Lakewoods Resort with a pair of binoculars and wait for the birds to come to you. Go for a drive to visit these nearby birding spots: 

  • Chippewa Flowage: home to Wisconsin’s third-largest lake and dotted with over 200 uninhabited islands, full of native species just waiting to be spotted (and maybe photographed)
  • Day Lake: this is a place for extraordinary wildlife viewing—there are many chances to watch eagles, waterfowl, grouse, and several other birds. Your furry friends are welcome but must remain on a leash of course
  • Lynch Creek State Wildlife Area: the shrubby wetland area hosts Belted Kingfisher, snipe, flycatchers, swallows, warblers, rail, Great Blue Heron, bitterns, Sandpipers, and many ducks. Many of the wetland birds are active at night, perfect for a moonlit walk

Perhaps you want to journey farther than the Cable area, so search the Wisconsin Department of Tourism’s list of fantastic birding locations
