TWO IN ONE FIELD TRIP. August 28 Half-day trip, Prophetstown SP + Spinn Prairie.  Bring a sack lunch.  Meet 7 a.m. at the park (far east end of Prophetstown Rd).  We will look for wildflowers, grassland birds, and early Fall migrants.  At 9:30 latecomers can meet us at the McDonalds on IN 43 by the I65 interchange.  We will then go to Spinn Prairie, 2 miles north of Reynolds (CR 200N and Meridian).  This prairie should be renewed from a burn last November.  Again we will check out flowers and avian friends.  We may stop at White County One, a gamebird habitat two miles away for pheasant and bobwhite.  Prior to returning, we’ll stop at Reynolds and eat our picnic lunch in their park while listening for the resident Eurasian-collared Doves.
