Join veteran birder and field trip leader Darlena Graham for a trip to Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge in Indiana. Graham has been birding Muscatatuck for years and has accumulated a great deal of knowledge about the refuge, including where to go, how to get around, and where to find the birds. This is an excellent opportunity to join some fellow birders and a knowledgeable leader for a full day in the field. This has been an interesting winter for waterfowl, between the warm weather, western storms, and rain, there are a number of interesting birds in our region, including unusually high numbers of Snow Geese, including dark morph Snow Goose, which is less common among the eastern population of Snow Goose. By mid-February, there is the possibility of early or even unusual migrants and vagrants, given the unpredictable nature of the weather this winter. If time allows, Darlena said a trip to Ewing Bottoms, which has been hosting large numbers of assorted geese and Sandhill Cranes, might be possible.
Bring a lunch and dress for the weather.
