Because we suspect that even representatives of the 15 inaugural communities recognized by Bird City Wisconsin in 2010 may not know the history of the organization they helped to launch more than a decade ago, this newsletter takes a look back, recalling how the program got its start.

In this issue, we share happy news from the Algoma Bird City Committee about a new children's book that was specially written to help the city celebrate World Migratory Bird Day, and we pass along resources from the Wisconsin Chimney Swift Working Group for chimney sweeps and masons that will benefit Chimney Swifts. Also in this issue: a reminder that it may be time for your community to update its street signs.
