BAHAMAS - People in Wisconsin rarely hear the call of the Kirtland's Warbler. It's even more rare to confirm a Kirtland's from Wisconsin in the bird's wintering grounds in the Bahamas.
We took you to Adams County last summer while biologists listened for the federally endangered songbird. You can see that story by clicking the link below.
There are just a few dozen Kirtland's Warblers in Wisconsin. The bird migrates to the Bahamas. This week, biologists in the Bahamas found the first-ever banded Kirtland's from Wisconsin. It was one of just six nestlings given identifying bands in Wisconsin last summer. The above is a picture of the bird just after it was banded in Wisconsin.
