The Village of Egg Harbor is celebrating the honor of becoming a certified Wisconsin Bird City with a Bird Tour, led by renowned naturalist Paul Regnier.
On Sunday, May 26 the Village invites you to enjoy a tour of birding areas in and around Egg Harbor aboard the “Birdie Bus.” Paul Regnier will drive the bus, stopping at 4 to 6 different locations inland and along the shoreline that are likely spots to see some of wonderful species that inhabit those regions.
Regnier and the Village hope to educate and inform participants about the various full time resident and migratory birds that will be discovered. This special birding outing is free and is sponsored by the Village of Egg Harbor. While there is no cost to join in the adventure, it is likely that the bus will fill quickly. The birdie bus departs Harbor View Park in the heart of downtown Egg Harbor at 10:15 am on a trip lasting approximately 90 minutes.
From 10 am to 1 pm, an information booth will also be set up in Harbor View Park to provide:
- free copies of the new Egg Harbor Birding Trail Map,
- free packets of sunflower seeds to encourage home bird-feeding stations,
- and talk with anyone interested in learning more about the “Bird City” designation and its meaning for the Village.
The Village has created an ad-hoc committee to drive the bird-friendly effort and has recently authorized the planting of Prairiefire Crabapple trees as an ideal nesting and feeding choice. Click the links for more information on Bird City Wisconsin or the Village of Egg Harbor.
