Birding on the Mississippi, Allamakee County, Iowa


The Mississippi Explorer riverboat took Dan Kaercher and many others on a cruise to see the migration of tundra swans resting on the Upper Mississippi river on their way south for the winter. A naturalist was on board to help spot some of the other wildlife diversity and ecology and answer passengers questions.

Hosted by Dan Kaercher, Iowa's Simple Pleasures features Iowa travel destinations, restaurants, events, parks, recreation and more. Produced by Iowa Public Television, the series highlights fun things for Iowans to do, see and taste, right here at home.
