October 21: Celebrating South Milwaukee’s Bird City Designation

From Rita Wiskowski, who is organizing this event …

We’re celebrating South Milwaukee’s Bird City designation!

Join us at 3 pm on October 21, as Bryan Lenz, Director of Bird City, Mayor Erik Brooks, other city officials, birders, Park Friends representatives, and community people come to Grant Park Picnic Area 5 for a brief presentation of SM’s newly designated Bird City Status. After the presentation we’ll do a little birding, so bring your binoculars and wear comfortable shoes.

Following the bird walk, at about 4:30, we’ll be headed to Moran’s Pub (912 Milwaukee Ave, South Milwaukee). Moran’s has a great selection of beers and offers a menu of sandwiches and soups. This portion of the celebration is known as a “Birds & Beers,” a gathering of birders where we discuss all things birds, over food and libations. Come and meet the birders who know that Grant Park is a great place to bird.

Hope to see you for this fun celebration on the 21st.

    Now, if only we could encourage some of those local coyotes to help out as well. I know a number of cats that allowed to roam and eat our Bird City Birds at will. Hopefully, the coyotes will find the cats as a tasty treat and help our birds.
