Is birdwatching all we have to offer?

Letter to the editor,
I was just wondering....is all that Rainy River has to offer is birdwatching?
I noticed the new signs last week, and read this weeks article in the Record.
Why is it the new signs say birder’s paradise, and the town’s website even has a link for birding? What about fishing and hunting? What about being the gateway to Lake of the Woods? What about the Rainy River itself?
Sure it’s great that we have a very diverse collection of bird species around, and it should be promoted. But really now....doesn’t it have more to offer? Or is that all the chamber of commerce could could come up with?
