Bird Migration & Bird Watching

Casey County is a real treat for bird-watching enthusiasts all year round.  Due to the unique topography and geology of the region, several different parts of the county are home to many different native species of birds.  It is not uncommon for one family’s yard to regularly host over 30 species of native birds.  Even at night, bird enthusiasts will enjoy hearing barred owls laughing in the trees and whippoorwills singing up into the early morning hours.  Photo Credit: Phillip Murphy

In the spring, we get a lot of special visitors including rose-breasted grosbeaks, orioles, and indigo buntings, just to name a few. Check out the Casey County Bird Watch Sightings by species.

Dry Land Fishing

Dry Land Fishing

Dryland fishing is a popular tradition for many families in Casey County.  Dryland fish aren’t fish at all; they are a species of edible mushrooms called Morchella that grows from April to mid-May.  Enthusiasts look forward to dryland fishing all year for the joy of the hunt and for excellent taste.  Morels are highly prized by gourmet cooks, especially those in French cuisine.  Dryland fish are later sliced, breaded, and fried and resemble fish in the frying pan.

Safety First:  Always ask permission to hunt for dry land fish on private property.  Inexperienced hunters should travel with more experienced hunters as there are several safety concerns that need to be considered when harvesting morels.

Ridgetop Greenhouses

Greenhouses Open

The South Fork area is home to several different popular greenhouses that are full of quality produce, flowers, and landscaping supplies.  People come in from all over the state to marvel at the beauty of the flowers in the spring after a cold winter.  A word of caution, after one visit to one of our local greenhouses, you’ll never want to go to another large retailer for plants again.  Photo Credit: Ridgetop Greenhouses
