You can count Sturgeon Bay and Egg Harbor as two communities in Door County as being more bird friendly. The city of Sturgeon Bay recently received its Bird City Wisconsin recognition from the Milwaukee Audubon Society for its aviary conservation activities. City administrator Josh VanLieshout says it was an honor for Sturgeon Bay to earn the designation.
Administrator Ryan Heise says Egg Harbor officials have been working with UW-Green Bay master graduate and avid birder Tom Prestby on how the village can become even more bird friendly such as installing more feeders and removing invasive species.
Ephraim, Baileys Harbor, Washington Island, and Algoma are also listed as Bird City Wisconsin communities.
