Enroll a friend or relative as a member of Hoy Audubon Society.

Wisconsin Bird Checklist 

   The club has a limited number of the new version of the checklist and of the checklist with migration charts. The migration charts show, on a week by week basis, what the likelihood is of seeing a particular species. These will be available free of charge to members at the monthly meetings.
