Winter Birds & Winter Birding

By Wayne Rohde

Wayne will focus on the birds we see in winter, whether permanent residents, regular winter visitors, or migrants/summer nesters which happen to show up. He’ll also discuss the various types of birding we can do during the winter months, such as attending eagle days, birding from vehicles, watching birds at feeders, and more.

A superlative birder and bird photographer, Wayne is a former board member of the Lakeland Audubon Society, as well as past editor of the Chat and field trip leader. In addition, Wayne has given a number of popular birding presentations at Lakeland Audubon chapter meetings. Wayne Rohde is a life-long resident of Wisconsin, has been an avid birder for 52 years, and has photographed 260 species of Wisconsin birds in the past 12 years.

This program is part of the chapter meeting and is scheduled for Tuesday, January 28th at 7:00 pm at the Lions Field House in Williams Bay, Wisconsin.  It is free to attend and open to the public. Refreshments will be served before and after the meeting.
