Signs of Spring are everywhere in the Mississippi River Valley: The ice is out and the tug boats are making their way through Lock and Dam #4. Perched on a bluff 500 feet above the Mississippi at Alma, Buena Vista Park is one of the best public viewing areas in Wisconsin for migrating warblers finches and grosbeaks. In addition,watch for Turkey Vultures, Red-tailed Hawks, Peregrine Falcons and Broad-winged Hawks (Aug-Sept). In fall, watch for Merlins, American Kestrels, Sharp-shinned Hawks and Coopers Hawks.The waters near the Lock and Dam are great for watching Bald Eagles fishing in the river. The park also harbors Scarlet Tanagers, Wood Thrushes, Hairy Woodpeckers and Ruffed Grouse. During April and May, the Mississippi Flyway is home to wonderful numbers of warblers, buntings, Rose Breasted Grosbeaks.
