As the snow falls and trees become bare, the activity of our bird population is still active in Door County. Door County attracts many visitors throughout the year, but also attracts many varieties of birds as well.
There are many bird species found in Door County, such as Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, Great Blue Herons, Turkey Vultures, Red-tailed Hawks just to name a few.
I have recently seen a variety of sparrows, Goldfinch, Blue Jays, House Finches, Pileated Woodpeckers, Downy Woodpeckers, Mourning Doves, Red-bellied Sapsuckers, Hairy Woodpecker, Nuthatches, Chickadees, and Cardinals. It has been an amazing winter so far watching our feathered friends. It’s very calming, especially through the trying times of 2020.
I look forward to seeing many new species this year! My first of 2021, a Bald Eagle! That seems to me a very good sign of what’s to happen in 2021.
Happy Bird Watching!
