Do the Sandhill Cranes show up in the fall? We saw them in the spring and it was amazing!

Aidan Rominger birds at Goose Pond FWA on his 15th birthday along with Mark Welter and Amy Hodson on October 26, 2014.They find and Aidan photographs one of the few LE CONTE'S SPARROWS reported on the property so far this fall. Le Conte's Sparrow is a species we want to stay for the Goose Pond Christmas Bird Count. Sometimes a few do stay. Generally speaking GPFWA is one of the best places in all of Indiana for fall and winter sparrows. We're glad when young Indiana birders visit Goose Pond FWA.--Lee Sterrenburg
