Birdie Bus tour scheduled Sunday
EGG HARBOR - To celebrate its new status as a certified Wisconsin Bird City, the village of Egg Harbor is hosting a tour of birding areas Sunday, led by local naturalist Paul Regnier.
Regnier will drive a "birdie bus," stopping at 4-6 locations both along the shoreline and inland, to educate and discuss the resident and migratory birds that are seen. There is no cost, but it is anticipated the bus will fill quickly. The birdie bus departs Harbor View Park on Wisconsin 42 at 10:15am for a circuit lasting approximately 90 minutes.
From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., an information booth will be set up in Harbor View Park to distribute the new Birding Trail map through the village, free packets of sunflower seeds to encourage home feeding stations, and talk with residents and visitors about the Bird City designation.

Crews were also expected to form and pour the approach slabs to the bridge.
