Great Lakes Birding

The Great Lakes region is the host for the 2019 Audubon Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Bordered by the funneling effects of the Great Lakes and at the convergence of the Atlantic and Mississippi flyways, our region provides critical habitat for more than 350 diverse bird species.
“One of my favorite things about working at Audubon is the many opportunities I get to enjoy bird walks. At this year’s convention, Wisconsin chapters have thoughtfully curated amazing field trips for you to enjoy.” – Rebeccah Sanders, Senior Vice President, States National Audubon Society
