Kirtland's warbler in Wisconsin

Bird enthusiasts from around the world flocked to northern Michigan hoping to catch sight of Kirtland’s warbler (Setophaga kirtlandii), once on the brink of extinction. Following decades of efforts, the species has made a remarkable recovery, and in October 2019 the Service announced the species no longer warranted ESA protection.
