We are located on a ledge, looking down on part of a vast wetland.
The header picture was taken out our back window of the first nice sunset.
We don't officially start until Wednesday, but Erin, Park Ranger, asked if we would like to take some water samples to Madison...so off we went.
We had no problem finding the place...straight down 151.
We got a peek at the Capitol Building. We will be touring that soon.
The first nice day since setting up, we were ready to see the area.
A 3 mile auto tour was in store. Notice the name: Ternpike.
There was a drawdown in an area where we stopped to see how many shorebirds we could spot. We were really enjoying it when a red tailed hawk scared everything off. We got a total of 12 birds.
Horicon NWR supports the largest nesting populations of redhead ducks east of the Mississippi. It is not just wetland habitat, but upland habitats, like prairie and woods, making a diverse habitat.
I opened my bedroom window to enjoy the cool weather and heard an explosion from an army of frogs...they serenaded us to sleep.
Yesterday, I heard the geese making a commotion, got my bins to see a coyote harassing the geese with all their goslings. He went away empty handed.
We will be sharing more about this area as we see and learn more about it.
We have a good feeling about this place and the people we have met.
The visitor center is VERY nice.
