The VA and Crown Hill Cemetery have agreed to pursue a land swap so the old growth forest will be save for now. Senator Joe Donnelly and Mayor Joe Hogsett both expressed pleasure the agreement.

Spring migration season is upon us! Have you ever wondered about the origin of birds migrating? Did birds from the tropics start moving north to breed - or did birds from temperate climates start moving to the tropics during the winter?

This interesting article from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology sheds some light on those questions. One of the most amazing migrants, the Northern Wheatear, has a population that breeds in northeastern Canada, and migrates across the Atlantic to Africa to spend it's winter. The other population breeds in Alaska and migrates the other direction, across the Pacific, to winter in Africa! How amazing is that?
