Early Spring Migrants at Mud Lake

  • Lower Mud Lake South End of Lewis Lane McFarland, WI United States (map)

NOTE: This field trip starts at 7:00 a.m. (not 8:00 a.m. as it is listed). Don’t forget to move your clocks ahead for Daylight Savings!

Mud Lake is usually the first body of water to thaw in our area, so it attracts good concentrations of spring migrating waterfowl. We will meet at 7 a.m. at the south end of Lewis Lane in McFarland. Bring a scope if you have one.

We will walk on mud paths on fairly level ground, but they can be icy or muddy depending on temps over night.

RAIN/SNOW DATE: Saturday, April 13

ACCESSIBILITY FEATURES:

  • Minimal walking required

APPROXIMATE DISTANCE FOR WALKING: 0-1 miles

RSVP REQUIRED? NO
