Birding in Collins, WI at Collins Marsh Wildlife Area & Nature Center

Collins Marsh Wildlife Area & Nature Center for Bird Watching or Birding in Collins City- Manitowoc County, WI (Southeast Wisconsin)


This 4,100-acre marsh habitat and wildlife area provides resting, nesting and feeding areas for waterfowl. Unique species include great blue herons (300-nest colony), great egrets, ospreys (two sucessful nests), yellow-headed blackbirds, and Forster's terns. Upland species include Hungarian partridge, ruffed grouse and woodcock. The nature center offers canoe rental for exploration of the marsh. Besides hunting, birding is likely the most popular activity at the Collins Marsh.

One intriguing aspect of the Collins Marsh is the wildlife center that is housed in a complex on the south side of JJ across from the main water-control feature. The center rents canoes during the warmer months that allow for exploration of the extensive marsh from the water. But most intriguing is the lookout tower that rises several hundred feet above the marsh.
