What We Do
Windom Wetland Management District provides an array of habitats to suit the needs of both migratory birds and resident wildlife. Exploring the prairies and wetlands at different times of the year will reward you with a variety of wildlife viewing opportunities. The prairie potholes provide important resting and feeding stopovers for migratory waterfowl and shorebirds as well as nesting habitat for a variety of marsh birds. Prairies provide nesting cover for grassland birds which have been rapidly declining in recent years. Resident wildlife such as red foxes, white-tailed deer, bald eagles, wild turkeys and ring-necked pheasants utilize a variety of habitats on the district and can be seen year round.
