Spring Birdwatching in Rhinelander

As the snow recedes and the forest comes to life, there are new arrivals flying in daily. It’s a beautiful time of year to go birdwatching and Rhinelander is the perfect place to embark on a birding adventure. If you’re new to birdwatching, you don’t need much to get started with this fun activity. Its a good idea to wear some waterproof shoes or boots; the trails can be a little damp in the spring. Binoculars and a birding guide will help you get the most out of the experience and you may want to bring a camera along with a telephoto lens to capture some of the magic you see.

A county park south of Rhinelander is a great place to start a birding expedition. The Almon Park Trails, located about five miles south of Rhinelander, are located in an 80-acre county park. Woodland trails wind through a northern bog and you’ll likely see a nice selection of birds; it’s perfect habitat for a wide variety of birds, including loons and woodpeckers.
