Pete Thayer's Favorite Hot Spots:
Falls of the Ohio
38.28 N   85.76 W
Across the river from Louisville, Kentucky,  this can be a great birding spot when the Ohio River is low in late summer and early fall. Rarities like Baird's Sandpiper and Buff-breasted Sandpipers have been seen here. In winter, interesting gull species may appear at any time.

Indiana Dunes State Park
41.66 N   87.06 W
The shoreline of southern Lake Michigan is a great spot for loons, grebes, gulls and shorebirds. In between the dunes are forested or swampy areas where migrants like to hide. Spring migration is good for hawk watchers.

Jasper-Pulaski Fish & Wildlife Area
41.18 N   86.90 W
Sandhill Cranes are the main attraction in the spring and fall with late October the best time to visit. This is one of Indiana's largest wetland areas.

Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge
38.96 N   85.82 W
Waterfowl love this place. During the migration season over 15,000 birds may be present at one time. Marshy habitat, open fields and woodlands result in a wide variety of passerines as well.  This Refuge is located between Indianapolis, Cincinnati and Louisville.
