Want to learn how to identify Wisconsin’s birds? With over 300 species observed and 70+ eBird hotspots, Waukesha County is just the place to start! Join our staff on a breeding or migratory bird survey to document which bird species are using the park system’s vital natural areas during spring, summer, and fall! Great for beginners looking to build their confidence as birders and experienced birders that want to refine their skills!

What to wear: Dress for the weather and being outdoors! Surveys may occasionally wander off trail into natural areas and tall grass. Close-toed shoes and long pants are recommended.

What to bring: Water, sunscreen, bug spray, binoculars, and a camera for taking pictures! The Parks Department has binoculars to lend out to participants during surveys as well.
