SPECIAL TRIP FOR YOUNG BIRDERS AT THE FRIENDS OF GOOSE POND MARSH MADNESS SANDHILL CRANE FESTIVAL, SATURDAY MARCH 5 2016.
TRIP LED INDIANA YOUNG BIRDERS CLUB OF INDIANA AUDUBON SOCIETY
For details go to the IYBC web site:
The trip starts at 8:30 AM. Young birders must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, as per the web announcement. Preregistration not necessary. In addition to the seasonal cranes birders at GPFWA yesterday (Saturday February 27 2016) saw over 140 AMERICAN WHITE PELICANS, over 7,000 SNOW GEESE in Main Pool West, and two different parties saw the first LESSER YELLOWLEGS of the season (3 birds total). It’s time to start thinking early shorebirds like snipe and maybe Yellowlegs. The big Snow Goose show should hopefully continue for another week and has recently had numbers up in the 15,000-20,000 range. Early March can be an exciting transition time.
Thanks to IYBC for partnering with Marsh Madness and Friends of Goose Pond on this trip for young birders!
