Pete Thayer's Favorite Hot Spots:
John James Audubon State Park

37.89 N   87.55 W
John James Audubon spent his early years here. The park has an Audubon museum  and seven miles of birding trails through woodlands and around two manmade lakes. Visit during spring or fall migration.

Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area
36.78 N   88.04 W
Nesting warblers, vireos and Wild Turkeys are found throughout the area. Spring and fall songbird migration here is excellent. This is also one of the nicest places in the state to take your family for an outdoor vacation.

Mammoth Cave National Park
37.14 N   86.05 W
Visit the cave first, then explore the hardwood forest and sandstone bluffs. Spring through mid-August is the best time to see the birds.
