Birdathon Begins!

It's time to donate to this year's Birdathon. We have a great lineup of grants this year and fourteen teams will be taking to the field soon for their big days. We wish all the teams luck as they scour the state in search of birds. And a special welcome to the new teams this year. We will be updating counts on the Birdathon page as the teams finish and report their totals. For more details on this year's grants, take a look a the Birdathon page, or go directly to the donation page to help us raise the $31,000 for this years grants. As always, thank you to all the generous donors that have made Birdathon a success for over 30 years. Make a difference! Make a pledge!

We had a great turnout of both birds and Birders at this morning’s Warbler walk at the Eagle Creek Park - Indy Parks and Recreation Marina! Here the group is all getting a look at a Canada Warbler found by Jonathan Yoerger.

If you missed the walk this morning and want to join in on the spring migration fun, be sure to head over to Ritchey Woods Nature Preserve tomorrow morning! There you can join Scott Enochs as he leads you on a walk looking for Warblers, Vireos, Tanagers, Flycatchers and more!

Rainy weather can sometimes make for a great day of birding! The Greenfield Birders had a successful first walk of the spring migration season today at Thornwood Preserve! They netted 32 species including these highlights:
- Identifying all 7 Indiana Woodpeckers at one park!
- Yellow-throated Warbler
- Yellow-rumped Warbler
- Pine Warbler

The Greenfield Birders hold walks every 2nd and 4th Saturday morning (with a few exceptions) through fall. Big thank you to Adam Wilson for the follow up report and photos!

Be sure to check the Amos Butler Audubon Society's website event calendar for a full listing of other local hikes in our area this spring!
