The article features the recovery and conservation of Kirtland warbler, a highly endangered songbird in Wisconsin. The distinctive male song of the bird can be heard up to a quarter miles away and scientists and bird lovers are doing its share to conserve the endangered bird. When authorities discovered warbler nests in Wisconsin, they are considered as a significant discovery by both residents and the U.S. The Fish and Wildlife Service and Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources collaborated to protect the site from disturbance. Some of the efforts made by the partnership include information dissemination, planting of jack pines, and protection of nesting habitats.
