Remember – Indiana Audubon Society Field Trip to Atterbury FWA is this Saturday – April 26, 2014

The IAS is sponsoring a Field Trip to Atterbury FWA this Saturday.  As you know from reading my posts this is the area I do a large percentage of my birding. I posted earlier this year about the field trip and some of the birds that might be expected on the trip – .

For more information and how to contact trip leader Doug Gray about signing up for the trip please go the following – .

I usually don’t like putting up complete lists of birds, but following are my personal lists from Atterbury last year to give an idea of the birds present.

Hope to see you Saturday.

  1. I found some feathers on the ground while mowing and they were black with bright yellow on them. Some said it could be a Flicker woodpecker and I did not know if we have them in Sellersburg IN. Would like to know what kind of bird this was. It did look like tail feathers

    1. Hi Judy. Sorry for the late reply but I have been out of town.

      It sure sounds like a Northern Flicker’s tail feathers. I did a Google search on “Northern Flicker tail feather images” and came up with all sort of photos of the feathers. See if any of them match up. I wonder what would have caused a flicker to loose it’s tail feathers? They are a bigger bird but I am sure there are animals and other birds that would go after them. Northern Flickers are year-round resident in all of Indiana and most of the continental U.S.
      Hope this helps and thanks for asking.
