Event Description:
Least Terns

June 8, 2017- 8:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.

Grab your binoculars and spotting scopes and join Indiana DNR's non-game bird biologists and the Friends of Goose Pond to view nesting Least Terns at Goose Pond FWA. All ages and experience levels are invited, but new bird watchers are encouraged to come. Bring water, sunscreen, bug repellent, and long lenses for your cameras. A limited number of loaner binoculars will be available, but if you can please bring your own. We will stand in the shade and enjoy watching the Terns from a distance as they court, choose nesting locations, incubate eggs, and catch fish. This would be an opportunity to get photos of courting, nesting, and foraging interior least terns, which are a federally endangered species. Participants will meet at Goose Pond's Visitor's Center to sign in and then caravan to the site.

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.
