Shorebirds and passerines migrating from Central and South America arrive in Indiana before they hit the Chicago area. One of the state’s hotspots is the Goose Pond Fish & Wildlife Area in Linton, Indiana, an 8,000-acre area on the Indiana Birding Trail that lies 225 miles south of Chicago.
Last year’s sightings on this weekend spanned 100 species ranging from White-faced Ibis and Long-billed Dowitcher to the first wave of warblers, sparrows and landbirds, including species we rarely see in the Chicago area like Carolina Chickadee, Tufted Titmouse, White-eyed Vireo and Blue Grosbeak. We’ll also cover nearby areas like Greene-Sullivan State Forest – all with a local guide who is intimately familiar with this patch.
