  • As the trail passes through a native prairie land, visual rewards abound with birds and butterflies enjoying the abundant food sources of this habitat. The indigo bunting seems to “out-sing” other birds in an enthusiastic rush of notes that sound like “What! What! Where! Where! See it! See it!” About the size of a sparrow, the male indigo bunting is easy to spot with his brilliant blue coloring.
  • Forested hills roll down to the Ohio River, offering opportunity to view a bald eagle in flight. The sun drops behind the river at day’s end, creating spectacular sunsets.
  • Wild turkeys may meander through, scratching and pecking at the ground, always on the search for tasty morsels, such as seeds or insects. The occasional large, unearthed caterpillar is considered a prize by these birds. Wild turkeys tend to band together in groups, so if you see one, there are probably more very close by.
