Snowy Owl and Open Country Raptor Trip
December 8 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm ESTFree – $15
THIS TRIP IS CURRENTLY FULL.
Explore the early December country of Indiana on this special field trip leaving from central Indiana. By this date, we expect to be seeing the first of what should be an echo flight of Snowy Owls return to Indiana. Last year saw over 180 Snowy Owls visit the state, and the first year after a major invasion (echo flight) usually sees upwards to half of the year previous. In addition to car pooling to possible Snowy Owl locations, we’ll also seek out other early winter raptors, larks, and other open country birds we find along the way.
IAS member and 19 Owls enthusiast, Kevin Cornell, will guide particpants, based on recent reports and well known locations to look for Snowy Owls. Registered participants will receive notifications prior to the trip with possible locations. Participants should be prepared to drive an hour or more based on where recent reports may be.
The trip begins at 9:00 AM at the Cool Creek Nature Center in Carmel, IN. Participants must pre-register, as trips fill up fast. The trip is free for IAS members and $15 for non-IAS members. For questions email Kevin Cornell here.
