#21in21: Jasper-Pulaski Cranes Field Trip
November 6 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT
Join us for a special IAS field trip to watch the amazing congregations of Sandhill Cranes at Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area. JPFWA is well known for it’s extensive woodlands and wetlands that host a wide variety of birds. But, JPFWA is most known for hosting the largest groups of Sandhill Cranes east of the Mississippi and should be on every Indiana birder’s bucket list. This trip is timed with the peak period of migration, where upwards of 20,000 cranes can be viewed on any particular evening. The bulk of the time will be spent watching the arriving cranes, as well as other late migrants near the tower site, such as sparrows, woodcocks, and more.
Participants should meet at the Jasper-Pulaski FWA crane observation parking lot, just west of the main park office on Saturday, November 6 at 4pm CT/5pm ET. Participants will meet trip leader, Kristen Sweinhart, and can contact before the trip with questions Here. Registration is free for IAS members, and $10 for non-IAS members.
