Ten years after the endangered Kirtland’s Warbler was first documented in Wisconsin, populations of the songbird have increased. Their range is expanding through the efforts of state, federal, and local partners to increase and manage the bird and its habitat in the state. This progress reflects a decade of conservation work from many enthusiastic and dedicated partners.
