Bird Summary Justin Trails Resort June 2017

Pack your binoculars! Wisconsin is home to over 300 species of birds (over 400 species have been recorded in the state) and our beautiful eco-friendly resort is the perfect place to spot many of them. We offer a peaceful habitat for our feathered friends with over 200 acres of woodland, ponds and organic farm land.

Bird feeders hang from the eaves of The Lodge for your viewing during breakfast.
