A whole bunch of migratory birds are heading back to Wisconsin - and they have over 70 students cheering for their return. Every year 55 different species of birds leave Costa Rica, where they've been hanging out for the winter, and head home to Wisconsin to welcome back the warm weather. This year, they have quite the welcome home party waiting for them.
The Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin, Madison Audubon Society and Osa Conservation teamed up with six schools throughout Wisconsin to have second- through fourth-grade students write postcards to migratory birds that have returned to Wisconsin after a long journey. The program is called Wings To Wisconsin.
The results are, of course, absolutely adorable.
