We recently visited our daughter in Milwaukee and made a stop Bong Recreation Area in southeast Wisconsin on the way out. Bong Recreation Area bills itself as a ‘prairie pothole’. It contains grasslands as well as many shallow wetlands, or potholes. The prairie pothole region of the northern Great Plains is important for migratory waterfowl. As a side note, we learned that, for obvious reasons, signs for Bong Recreation Area are often stolen.
We enjoyed the nature trails that wander around a couple of the ‘potholes’ and saw a number of bird species including many red-winged blackbirds and a mute swan chasing off a Canada goose. On the downside, we ended up with about 12 (dog) ticks between us.
