Starke County and Jasper-Pulaski

Starke County and Jasper-Pulaski State Fish and Wildlife Area – November 27, 2016

Since ROC decided we hadn’t been in Starke County, we decided a trip to Starke County and Jasper-Pulaski State Fish and Wildlife Area was in order!

We saw a rough-legged hawk in Starke County and several hundred if not a thousand Sandhill Cranes at the viewing platform at Jasper-Pulaski. The count was considerably down from other times as the weather has been unseasonably warm and the fall-like weather hanging on later than usual.

We saw about 22 deer in the field to the southwest of the viewing platform–taking advantage of the protected, no-hunting area of the wildlife area during the hunting season. I’m pretty sure we saw them there the last time we were here in the fall!
We saw 2 eagles while we were there also.

Finally, the last of the 92 counties visited today!

Another 2016 Bicentennial of State Goal achieved!
