Three weeks ago at Stockbridge Audubon Society's first field trip this fall, the weather was miserable but there were lots of waterfowl. Today the weather was perfect but the bird numbers were less than dazzling. This field trip closes the SAS fall field trip season.

I went to Eagle Marsh expecting to find a lot of migrant ducks, but was disappointed. Nice walk, though.

11.10.23 Approximately 65 swans, including three species, congregated on the Lake George wetland today. A team of locals are again sadly confronted with dead swans in the wetland. Now, in the fifth consecutive year, we just collected 25 dead waterfowl, the majority 16 Mute Swans. We have turned over to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources 4 Tundra Swans, 3 Redheads and 1 Ring-necked duck for necropsies. (Previous years 2 Trumpeter Swans were collected.)

Now that George Lake is listed as a USEPA Superfund Site due to the former Federated Metals smelter contamination, we hopefully will get the attention deserved for the federally protected wetland.

This Whiting-Hammond-East Chicago, IN area is between two Confined Disposal Facilities and at the BP Whiting refinery and Cleveland Cliffs Indiana Harbor steel works. At the same time, we are in the zone of Lake Michigan, the bi-state Wolf Lake, and Lake George wetland.

It is difficult to do conservation here since Indiana and Illinois organizations receive oil and steel grants that hinder grassroots conservation. Please be aware of this situation when in the Calumet Area.

( Hammond Lake George is located on Calumet Ave. across from the bi-state Wolf Lake in SE Chicago, William W. Powers recreation area.
