Midwest Trails

I, too, am disappointed in the lack of information about Midwest trails. There's a lot more to it than flat, open land! What about the forests of Michigan and Minnesota and Wisconsin?

Midwest Trails

We seem to be experiencing some technical difficulties with the story, and the Midwestern trail pages aren't showing up. You can see the Midwest trails if you view the story as a single page (click "Show full page", located beneath the page numbers). Our IT department is working to fix the problem.

Bird watching

Wisconsin has great bird watching areas. One of the greatest places to watch bald eagles is the Wisconsin River.

I will be travelling to the

I will be travelling to the Chicago area soon and would like information on Midwest trails. Do you have that information??

Chicagoans

The email I received from Audubon said "Chicagoans for instance, can spy Bobolinks, tanagers, hawks, warblers and rails—and still be home in time for lunch." Yet when I clicked the link and read through the lengthy list of birding trails, I saw nothing in the Chicagoland area. I certainly can't get home for lunch from Kansas or Kentucky.

Chicagoans

It's true! Montrose Harbor here in Chicago is the place to go I hear, though currently doing a bird count for LPZoo, I've seen all sorts of good stuff. A little out of the ordinary for the area nothing crazy. Champaign, IL has some great migrants, and the suburbs (Kane County) of Chicago gets Sandhill Cranes, White Pelicans, and all sorts of randoms if you know where to look. I'm bummed Audubon skipped over it. :-(

If you want to see the state endangered Black Crowned Night Heron, come visit Lincoln Par Zoo, we've got hundreds!

No Midwest trails to share?

How come you don't provide any information about Midwest trails?
