Counting Bird Nests

Black-crowned Night Heron Nest and Eggs
Last May I was lucky enough to help two of my colleagues with the DNR, Sumner Matteson and Art Techlow counting White Pelican nests on Lake Winnebago and Lake Butte des Morts.  Along with the Pelicans we found the nests of: Great Egrets, Black-Crowned Night Herons, Great Blue Herons, Double Crested Cormorants, Mallard Ducks, Canada Geese, Ring-billed Gulls and Herring Gulls.  I guess I was also luck enough to only get hit three times by “bird bombs.”
