Join Indiana Audubon for a special look at the winter spectacle of eagles along the upper Wabash River and reservoir floodplains. Wintering Bald Eagles have climbed considerably in this area over the last decade, and now this area of northern Indiana hosts as many eagles as many of the other known Indiana wintering sites. Some counts exceed 100 birds in a morning!
This special field trip will meet at Salamonie Reservoir on January 23, at 3:00 PM. A second trip, Here
, will be offered on January 30. Registered participants will meet at the Lost Bridge East SRA parking lot by the boat launch. From there we’ll caravan to a few areas to view both feeding and roosting eagles.
This IAS field trip is being led by IAS Board Member April Raver. The trip begins at 3:00 PM Eastern time. Participants must pre-register, as trips fill up fast. The trip is free for IAS members and $10 for non-IAS members. Total time about 2 hours. For questions, message
