Happy New Year!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you to all our guests who made 2009 a successful year here at The River Nest Bed and Breakfast. We look forward to seeing you and meeting many new friends in 2010.
Valentine bookings are beginning to come in, but January shouldn’t be ignored. Great views, the fireplace and jacuzzi, and comfort food breakfasts all contribute to a cozy getaway here.
Upcoming events in the Reads Landing/Wabasha/Kellogg area include the Grumpy Old Men Festival and the National Eagle Center’s Soar With the Eagles month-long celebration. Be sure to check them out at the Chamber of Commerce and National Eagle Center websites.
The January Bird Report:
The eagles are here! Saturday morning we counted 47 in the trees along the river. Our neighbor likes to compare counts with us. He always sees triple what we count. I tease him that he’s counting the same one flying by every time! Right now (January 12 at 1:30 p.m.) we have several along the ice in front of the B&B. They like to sit there and fish.
The backdoor bird feeders are emptying quickly. The cardinals, bluejays, chicadees, nuthatches, finches, doves, and various woodpeckers–downy, red bellied, and hairy–have had great appetites during our winter blasts. We have two pilleated woodpeckers that have been visiting the suet basket daily.
Come and enjoy our eagles and backyard birds, our comfy suites, and our Grandma Tillie breakfasts. Give yourself a delightfully warm winter break at The River Nest Bed and Breakfast!
