Birding in Nelson, WI at Tiffany Wildlife Area

Covers 13,000 acres along the Chippewa River Valley in west-central Wisconsin. The Tiffany is the largest continuous stand of bottomland hardwood forest in the state. View a variety of raptors, waterfowl and upland birds in a diverse topography of blufflands, native prairies, savannahs and wetland habitats.


DNR staffs periodically mow and use controlled burning to maintain meadow and grassland habitat at Tiffany Wildlife Area for waterfowl nesting cover and a number of other upland birds. Burning also maintains native prairie and savannah plants that existed before white settlement. Beaver dams on sloughs and old river meanders create a maze of ponds and wetlands. Hand-made wood duck houses dot wetland habitat to help maintain these birds.
