Goose Pond Spoonbill Makes Local News

With my recent posts about Goose Pond FWA I thought that some of you might be interested to know that the Roseate Spoonbill has attracted the attention of two local television stations, WISH-TV and WXIN Fox, in Indianapolis. Both sent reporters and cameramen to the property and interviewed both Lee Sterrenburg, a frequent Goose Pond birder, and Brad Feaster, the property manager. It is great to see that the property is getting the attention that it deserves and just maybe this will lead the surrounding communities to realize the potential economic effects of quality natural areas.

You can see the segments by following these links:

WISH-TV (the better segment in my opinion):

WXIN:

It's great to see local media taking an interest in the birds!
