Spring is here, and wildlife viewing is popular


With the arrival of spring, there have been many wildlife viewers and photographers out enjoying Crawford County in recent days. Wildlife viewing opportunities can be found throughout the county and in neighboring counties. Above, pelicans cruise Gremore Lake looking for fish. (Photos by Ted Pennekamp)

Whitetail deer seem to be everywhere, and are enjoyable to watch.

A whitetail deer trots towards the woods.

Bald eagles remain as popular as ever, and many people have been out with their binoculars lately. This one was along County K north of Prairie du Chien, along with numerous other eagles, seagulls and waterfowl.

One of the features that distinguishes a trumpeter swan (above) from a tundra swan is that the black coloration in front of the eyes doesn’t pinch down. From a distance the eyes blend in. The eyes are more distinct on a tundra swan, especially when viewed head-on.

This pair of trumpeter swans is in the pond/marsh on the Crossing Rivers Health property for the third straight year.
