Lakefront Birding at Shoop Park/Wind Point

November 26 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

We’ll meet at the parking lot at Shoop Park. We may walk northward along the lakefront to the Wind Point Lighthouse. To get back to the parking lot, we’ll either retrace our steps or walk along the edge of Shoop golf course. The field trip end time will depend on bird activity and/or weather conditions but will generally conclude no later than 12:00 PM.

Along the lake we’ll be looking for migrating ducks, scoters, grebes, and other waterfowl. We might see a few shorebirds at the lakefront as well as some late fall migrants like Yellow-rumped Warblers and kinglets in the wooded areas.

In November it’s usually cold and windy at the lakeshore, so dress for the weather (a warm jacket, a hat, and gloves) and wear sturdy walking shoes (0.6 miles one-way). Bring your bird book, binoculars, and a spotting scope if you have one (don’t worry if you don’t!).

Shoop Park is located between the 3 and 4 Mile Roads, Racine Co.
