Barred Owl-Indiana Dunes S.P.
« : April 27, 2008, 03:44:08 PM »
   Sulli Gibson posted  a request about where to find Barred Owls and a few other birds at Indiana Dunes S.P. , on the InBird website.  Trail  2 was given as one location for the Barred Owl.  Coming back from Michigan today I stopped at the Dunes and went on Trail 2.  Not only did I find one Barred Owl but two.

Thanks so much for actually going out and finding the owls! Were they easy to find? Did you play tapes?

   The Owls found me, after hearing the Birdjam Nanopod.  But this was not my first trip looking for these Owls, just my only successful one.

I went out a few days ago (May 24) and only heard one Barred Owl. I'll be back probably in the winter or early spring when there aren't any leaves. But the main point of going to the dunes was to find the Cerulean Warblers, I found 4 singing males and 1 female on the nest.
