Tourism Review

Indiana's state bird, the cardinal, is shown.

Ah, the joys of bird watching. If you're like me, you receive special satisfaction from attracting birds to your backyard or garden. However, if you have never participated in this hobby, you may want to try it now, especially since La Porte County is part of a major migratory flyway.

Kenneth Brock, author of "Birds of the Indiana Dunes", describes this flyway as a "Funnel Effect", especially during the autumn migration. However, during northbound migrations, you may see many small songbirds in the parks and on the shores of Lake Michigan and other inland lakes.
