Migratory Bird Stopover Habitat in Wisconsin’s Areas of Concern When migrating, birds need suitable habitat to rest and refuel. This “stopover habitat” is critical for the survival of migratory bird species. In Wisconsin, many stopover habitats for a variety of species lie within the five Great Lakes Areas of Concern — areas affected by toxic contamination and serious habitat degradation. Clean up and restoration of these important areas will greatly benefit our migratory bird species. Partial funding for this video was provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.
