Site 9: College Ave Bridge & Banta Ct., near 1143 E Banta Ct., Appleton
At this location you can either view from below the bridge or park your car and walk up the steps to view from the bridge’s sidewalk area. Birds often like to perch in the cottonwood trees to the northeast side of the bridge and a nest can be seen in the distance to the southwest. There is normally open water in this area so you will see a variety of other waterfowl. Monitors have even reported seeing deer in this urban area. To get to this site take College Avenue to the south side of the river. Take the first right onto E. Banta Court. There is ample parking beneath the bridge.
