The official North Woods bird list has 105 species, of which 50 or more commonly breed there in the summer, another 41 use the area as a stopover during migration, and a few are winter residents. Familiar examples include robins, cardinals, and chickadees, although less common groups, including flycatchers, warblers, thrushes, indigo buntings, and ovenbirds, can also be seen in the Woods. We have focused our attention on several species that are particularly common during the academic year (using a 'species page' template).
