South of Michigan City is the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore's Heron Rookery. Here in the spring, nesting pairs of herons raise their young. The dense tree tops hids their nest and it takes time and a trained eye to see them. Don't let the lack of finding birds send you away, there are acres of spring wild flowers to enjoy.The Rookery is south of...more
