Bird Sanctuary News
|Birds at Kellogg Bird Sanctuary|
Ducks, Geese, and Swans. The Kellogg Bird Sanctuary is a premiere area for birders interested in viewing migratory waterfowl. Originally started as a refuge for the now-familiar Canada Goose (Branta Canadensis), it was also a key player in re-introducting Trumpeter Swans (Cygnus buccinator) to the Midwest. Many species of duck, herons, and other wading birds are also occasionally sighted. The Canada Goose and Trumpeter Swan remain our most common inhabitants; many nest and raise families on Wintergreen Lake.
If you are interested in viewing birds at the Sanctuary, see below for a species checklist and information about our resident swans.
