Indiana Audubon Fall Festival

Greetings from Merrillville, Indiana:

This evening, Eric, Stephanie, and I arrived in the Indiana Dunes area for the IAS Fall Festival. Although we were running a little late due to traffic, we got to hear a fantastic presentation by John Kendall about his record setting Indiana Big Year that he did in 2008. It was a fascinating presentation and really makes me want to make a run at the Big Year record!

Tomorrow I will be leading a group around the Dunes starting at Michigan City Harbor. Hopefully we will be able to find some awesome birds for everyone. Tomorrow night after the keynote speech, we will be participating in some Northern Saw-whet Owl banding at Indiana Dunes State Park. This is the first time that there has banding attempt at this site and we really hope that it goes well.

I will be sure to keep you all up to date on the excitement of the weekend!
