A Rhinelander Area Birdwatching Gem
Birdwatchers coming to the Northwoods have a chance to get a little closer to nature through the amazing water channels the Rhinelander area has to offer.
Many people compare the Willow Flowage to the Boundary Waters Canoe area, and for good reason: this remote complex of islands, sloughs and channels is one of the wildest places in Wisconsin.
Common bird species include blue herons, ospreys, mergansers and kingfishers. Loons are plentiful. The flowages 117 islands and numerous backwaters are home to rare species of birds and plants. Bring your binoculars and explore this natural gem.
