    Wiscosin Turkey Vultures

    by Tanya Rothe

     

    Central WI is filled with many Turkey Vultures soaring through the sky looking for their next tasty meal.  Many people have become frightened by this enormous bird; however, there is nothing to be afraid of.  They are only interested in keeping to themselves and searching for fresh carcasses to feast on.  From a distance, they are sometimes mistaken for an Eagle or Osprey until you see their unique flight pattern.  Turkey vultures fly in large circles with their wings pointing up in a “v” shape.  They are considered scavengers using their sharp sense of smell from high in the sky.

    Their feathers are a darker brown color and they have a reddish colored head.  The habitat of Wisconsin Turkey Vultures is generally open areas around roadsides and farm fields.  This magnificent bird has such an extreme sense of smell that enables it to be able to find food below a ceiling of treetops without even seeing it ahead of time.  Turkey Vultures have a lot of great stories being told about them including one very interesting tale.  Tibetan Buddhists actually incorporate them into their funeral services.  They have what is called a “Sky Burial,” where they have the turkey vultures consume their dead bringing them into the sky above.

    Predators: Skunks, owls, snakes, and hawks.

    Wiscosin Blue Jay

    by Tanya Rothe

    Blue Jays are a very beautiful and adventurous bird species that can be seen throughout Wisconsin.  They are well-known for their call and brilliant blue colors.  Jays are omnivores eating a variety of nuts, seeds, insects, and worms.  These birds tend to keep in flocks and travel South during the Winter seasons to find warm common grounds.  The Blue Jay is a very smart creature that is also highly able to adapt to its surroundings increasing its chances of survival in the wild.  Many of these blue birds have lost some interests due to their aggressiveness and habits of raiding other bird specie’s nests stealing eggs.  Other than that, they are pretty calm birds and a great sight to see in bird watching.

    Wisconsin Birds

    By: Tanya Rothe

     

    Wisconsin is home to many varieties of many different breeds of birds.  Everywhere you travel throughout the state you hear the chirping of song birds and the flapping of wings fluttering through the wind.  At certain times of the year, in Adams County, Central Wisconsin, you can drive by the Lake Petenwell area and see Osprey nests on tops of the telephone poles.  There are different bird conservancies throughout the state that give the different species homes helping to preserve their existence and to give visitors from all around a place where they can view and learn about birds from all over the country.
        
    Most of the Wisconsin population like to have unique set ups of all kinds in their yards to attract the different varieties of Wisconsin Birds for entertainment.  There are different ways you can do this.  But beforehand, always remember to make sure you are following your local laws and regulations if any apply.  The first step is to decide what type of birds that you want to attract to your yard.  The type of bird determines the type of feeder and feed that you will need to get.  The second step is to find your bird feeders and determine how many you would like.  Ground feeders are screened bottomed feeders that sit a few inches off the ground attracting doves, juncos, sparrows, finches and cardinals.

    Sunflower seed tube feeders get hung off the ground keeping squirrels from eating all of the food.  They tend to attract woodpeckers, chickadees, titmice, nuthatches, finches, and siskins.  There are many types of feeders to choose from in a variety of colors and designs.  The next step is to select your bird seed.  Buy your seed that matches the bird type that you want to attract.  You can buy mixes or buy bulk amounts of different kinds and make your own.  Some types of feed are sunflower seeds, millet, thistle, suet, peanuts and fruit.  All that’s left is to keep your feeders maintained by making sure they stay full and enjoy the sight!
        
    Besides attracting Wisconsin birds to your yard, many residents enjoy going birding.  It is great fun to travel to the many state parks and other places in the state to find and take pictures of all the different species of birds.  Wisconsin’s top ten bird watching locations are as follows: Wisconsin-Point Superior, Crex Meadow Wildlife Area, Nicolet National Forest, Green Bay, Horicon Marsh, Wyalusing State Park, Baraboo Hills, Madison, Eastern Ozaukee County, and Milwaukee.  

     

    Interesting Facts about Wisconsin Birds

    • There are 59 groups of bird species in Wisconsin.
    • Hummingbirds drink sugar water instead of seeds and are attracted to red.
    • The American Robin is the most abundant land bird in North America.

    • The American Robin is Wisconsin’s State Bird.
    • The Northern 1/3 of Wisconsin has thousands of lakes which are popular nesting grounds for eagles, osprey and loons.
