Killdeer in Winter

Killdeers winter in Indiana in fairly small numbers. So, it is a treat to see one in December and January. This was one of four birds seen at the Red Gold plant in Geneva, Adams Co., during the Limberlost Christmas Bird Count on Jan 1.

ABAS Mourns the Loss of Carl Weber

Our friend and great supporter, Carl Weber, passed away on November 2. Carl, along with the late Bud Starling, were for decades the two pillars of the Indianapolis birding community. Carl's friendly persona and sense of humor charmed everyone who met him. He was a tireless supporter of Amos Butler Audubon and the birds. He will be dearly missed.

Red Phalarope in LaPorte Co

Many birders have been visiting Kingsbury Fish & Wildlife Area, La Porte Co., IN, since Monday because of a Red Phalarope being present. This tundra breeder and ocean wanderer is occasionally seen on the Great Lakes in fall migration but it is rare inland and very rare for one that can be reliably chased.
