Indiana Young Birders Symposium

Cool Creek Nature Preserve, Carmen, IN

On Saturday I was honored to be the keynote speaker at the Indiana Young Birders' Symposium to speak about my Oak Park Bird Walk series (email me at trumpetswan@comcast.net to make a reservation for a walk this fall) and the underlying conservation initiatives of the bird walks. Thank you to Jonathan Bontrager and his family for putting me in contact with the Indiana Young Birders about this.

We kicked off the morning with a bird walk through Cool Creek Nature Preserve!

The only noteworthy bird seen was this unidentified Empidonax species flycatcher:

The symposium was a success! Stay tuned for Oak Park Bird Walks which start next weekend, and then the following weekend over Labor Day, I will be traveling downstate with my friends Isoo, Eddie, Brett, and Jake to pursue migrant shorebirds at Chatauqua Nature Preserve. It will be a blast!

Good birding,

Henry
