$425 double occupancy; 6 to 9 participants

This spring’s warbler tour is heading south… to John James Audubon State Park in Henderson, KY. This beautiful state park is located just across the Ohio River from Evansville, IN. The time of year was chosen to coincide with the projected peak of songbird migration in the area. The tour includes transportation from Bloomington, stops at some of the top birding areas in southern Indiana, and 2 nights of lodging at the state park.

We will leave Bloomington on the morning of the 4th and drive to Patoka River National Wildlife Refuge for birding at Sycamore Land Trust’s Columbia Mine Preserve. After lunch we will continue to Angel Mounds State Park if time allows before checking into the cabins at Audubon State Park. At Audubon SP on the 5th we will spend time hiking trails, birding the wetlands, and visiting the nature center/museum. We will bird in the park again on the 6th before checking out and heading to the Eagle Slough Natural Area and Howell Wetlands before our drive back to Bloomington.

All entrance fees are included. Food is not included; we will have breakfasts in the cabins, picnic lunches, and dine in restaurants in the evening.

Cost is $425 per person for double occupancy. I have four 1-bedroom cabins reserved at the state park. Each cabin has a king bed and a pull-out bed. Please consider registering for the tour with a spouse, friend, or partner that would share the cabin with you. Up to 4 people could stay in one cabin, but 2 or 3 would be more comfortable. Cost for a 3rd or 4th person in a group is $275. To register, please email me at david@indigobirding.com with basic information and any questions you may have. If you live in the Evansville area and are interested in joining for part (or all) of the tour, please let me know.
