2nd Oak Park Bird Walk of Fall 2014

semi-overcast 47 °F

I apologize for the late post, but last Sunday I led one birder, Ed McDevitt, on the second Oak Park Bird Walk of the season. It was unseasonably cold (47 degrees) but the birds were relatively abundant and active, especially when compared to the first walk of this fall. Before I give the details of the walk, here is a list of more of these upcoming free walks that I will lead and a link to go to the new Oak Park Bird Walk website.

The walk was overall more productive than the first one with 29 avian species seen in total, including more "good" birds including 7 types of warblers. As always, it was a pleasure to bird with Ed McDevitt.

Good birding,
