Goose Pond Area Raptor Trip
December 8 @ 10:00 am - 8:00 pm
Join Scott Enochs as he leads you to Greene County in search of migrating and wintering raptors. Goose Pond, and surrounding areas in Greene County, have become a prime wintering area and migratory stop-over for raptors such as Northern Harrier, Rough-legged Hawk, Merlin, Golden Eagle, and Short-eared Owl. The event will take place on Saturday, December 8, 2018. Meet at the Kroger located at 1930 East Main Street in Plainfield at 10:00 a.m. and carpool to Goose Pond. We plan to stop for lunch at the McDonald’s in Linton before we begin searching Greene County for birds.
We will spend the afternoon and evening trying to find as many birds of prey as possible. We will remain in the area through sunset in hopes of seeing Short-eared Owls emerge from their daytime roost. Participants can expect to spend a lot of time driving in their vehicles until we find a raptor to study.
The event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required, but is greatly appreciated. Please contact Scott at (317) 850-4801 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
