Eagle Creek is a very large municipal park in northwest Indianapolis, featuring a reservoir, bird sanctuary, forest, hiking trails, and other educational and recreational opportunities. I took advantage of warm weather, and hiked around the bird sanctuary and forest. Some portions of the trails were quite muddy, but I only fell in the mud once.
My brother, Chance, worked at this park years ago as a parks employee, giving tours and making educational presentations. I am always amazed at how much Chance knows about the environment and birds in particular.
