A group of 13 bird photography enthusiasts had a great walk at Eagle Creek Park this morning! The thunderstorms stayed away, and we even had some sunshine at the end of the trip! Cooperative Purple Martins, Tree Swallows, Red-winged Blackbirds and Eastern Bluebirds allowed us to really focus on properly exposing our photos, and work on getting that fine feather detail in our shots. Thanks to those who participated!

Stay tuned for the next photography walk coming up this summer! 📷 🦅 🙌🏻

Great first Urban Bird Walk of the season at Garfield Park Conservatory - Indy Parks and Recreation! Here's our eBird List from today. Make sure to sign up for the next one, so you won't miss out on what will hopefully be another morning full of great bird sightings and great weather!

Hey, Johnson County birders and ABAS members, check out this eBird list from Driftwood Fish and Wildlife Area! I, Jessica Helmbold, your ABAS Education Chair, just birded there for the first time last night, with no binoculars mind you, I was walking my dog, and I still got quite a list! Just imagine, if I had had my binoculars! A good place to check out, if you haven't before. It's right off US 31 in Edinburgh. Future field trip, perhaps?
