Kirtland's Warbler
(wgvu) - The discovery of a rare Kirtland's warbler
nest in central Wisconsin has U-S Fish and Wildlife Service
officials believing the bird has finally found a second home.
The warbler typically makes its home in the northern part of
Lower Michigan.
Fish and Wildlife Service officials say the bird has been
ranging outward from Lower Michigan, with sightings in Wisconsin,
Michigan's Upper Peninsula and Ontario.
But no nests had been found outside Michigan for decades.
Officials say the warbler population dropped from 432 singing
males in 1951 to 201 males in 1971.
But thanks to recovery efforts, estimates put last year's male
population at nearly 15-hundred.
