Birding in Adams, WI at Quincy Bluff & Wetlands Preserve

This 1,705-acre preserve in Adams County, 20 miles north of Wisconsin Dells offers a variety of terrains with bluffs, buttes and mesas, pine forest and sedge meadows, tamarack swamps, bogs and wetlands.


Bird species include northern harrier hawks, turkey vultures and sandhill cranes. Because wild lupine grows in the area, this is a good potential habitat for the Karner blue butterfly. Bluebirds, yellow warblers and other songbirds also flourish in the barrens.

In addition, many birders reported a strong eagle flight including a number of migrant golden eagles that spent the winter in the upper Midwest. Song sparrows are now backing on territory in southern Wisconsin along with killdeer, robins, red-winged blackbirds, grackles and the other permanent residents. Geese are moving through in large numbers. Call the Nature Conservancy for more information.
