Geocache Description:


Waterbird Rapids is a hidden pocket of abundant waterfowl and other waterbirds close to the center of urban Menasha.

At this cache site, the waters of the Fox River remain open year-round due to the effect of the currents below the Menasha dam and warm water discharges from paper companies and other facilities. You will be able to spot large populations of Canada Geese and Mallard ducks, as well as American Mergansers and Bluebills in the winter months. Bald Eagles are common sightings here, and pelicans, seagulls, and cormorants, especially in the summer. During the time of cache placement, as many as eight Bald Eagles circled above or perched on trees on the small island nearby in the mouth of the river during one visit.

This cache was initially placed to help add some winter-friendly caches to our search options. Enjoy the bird watching at this location, particularly in the winter months.

NOTE: PLEASE LEAVE THIS CACHE EXACTLY AS YOU FOUND IT OR IT WILL BE VULNERABLE TO UNWANTED DISCOVERY BY FREQUENT USERS OF THIS LOCATION DURING WARMER WEATHER. IF NON-CACHERS ARE PRESENT YOU MAY NEED TO HOLD OFF ON MAKING YOUR SEARCH.

Congratulations to wiskey33 for the FTF on March 10!
