Event Description:
Migratory Shorebird Walk

May 9, 2017- 1:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.

Grab your binoculars and spotting scopes and join Indiana DNR's non-game bird biologists on a hike to view migratory shorebirds at Goose Pond FWA. All ages and experience levels are invited, but new bird watchers are encouraged to come. Bring water, sunscreen, and bug repellent and expect to walk up to 1 mile on medium-high grassy levees. Don't forget to bring rubber boots if you have them, as grass may be wet in the morning.  A limited number of loaner binoculars will be available, but if you can please bring your own.

Species you may see:
lesser yellow-legs
least, spotted, and solitary sandpipers
short-billed dowitchers

Pre-registration is required to participate in this event due to limited space, so sign up quickly. Register with the Red icon at the top right.
