Birds and Breakfast update....

We started off the sunny, cold morning by having a delicious breakfast at the WeatherVane Restaurant in Menasha.  After breakfast we carpooled and birded in the area.  Some bird highlights: Varied Thrush and Robins, lots of Bald Eagles (one even caught a very large fish), Goldeneyes, Redheads, Scaup, Bufflehead, and the usual winter birds.  Welcome to Natalie our newest bird club member!
