Paul Regnier Bird Tour Highlights Egg Harbor Event

The Village of Egg Harbor, the newest certified Wisconsin Bird City in Door County, will celebrate this new honor with a bird-centered event on May 26. The highlight of the event is a tour of birding areas in and around Egg Harbor, led by naturalist Paul Regnier. Regnier will drive a “birdie bus” for the tour, stopping at four to six locations along the shoreline and inland, to educate and discuss the resident and migratory birds that are seen. There is no cost for the tour, but the bus will fill quickly. The birdie bus departs Harbor View Park on Highway 42 at 10:15 am for a circuit lasting approximately 90 minutes.

From 10 am – 1 pm, an information booth will be set up in Harbor View Park to distribute a brand new Birding Trail map through the Village. Free packets of sunflower seeds will be distributed to encourage home feeding stations. 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.
