Goose Pond Weekend Birding Trip 2022
May 7 @ 8:00 am - May 8 @ 10:00 am EDT
Goose Pond Fish & Wildlife Area, and the nearby Greene-Sullivan State Forest boast nearly 20,000 acres of prairies, wetlands, and forest land. The continuing restoration of habitat at Goose Pond FWA has created a wildlife mecca that has quickly become one of the state’s best birding areas and has hosted an amazing array of rarities since its creation. As part of the birding, an evening bird excursion will occur for woodcocks, nightjars, and owls.
An early start Saturday will meet at the Goose Pond Visitor Center and will include a full day of birding, a box lunch at Goose Pond, followed by afternoon birding. This trip includes Saturday night lodging for participants in nearby Sullivan. If major targets are missed, birding early Sunday may be a possibility. Your trip leaders are Bill Sharkey and Richard Garrett, who have extensive experience birding Goose Pond and around the state.
A Few Target Birds Include:
Least Tern (slightly early)
Registration is required, as Indiana Audubon trips usually fill well in advance of the trip date. Registration fees include all guiding, 1 night accommodations in Sullivan, and a box lunch Saturday.
