The Winnebago Birding Guide is an online bird-finding site that highlights the wonderful birding locations in Winnebago County. This county has done a wonderful job in preserving land but even so, some birds are no longer found here – most notably the Greater Prairie Chicken.
Currently there are 36 forest preserves, 1 state park, and several other notable protected sites. The Guide is a work in progress, but we are planning on doing quite a bit of work on it throughout 2007 and beyond.
