The Wabash River bottomlands are home to a rich variety of bird species, including raptors, wading birds, and small migratory land birds. This program discusses the history of the bald eagles' nesting habits and their population growth in Vigo County; the use of the Wabashiki wetlands by great egrets and great blue herons in summer and fall; and the less conspicuous spring and fall migrations of 30 warbler species through the woodlands along the river.
