I have done a bit of birding yesterday and today around Oak Park as part of a school year-long survey project I am starting...more on that in a future post because I have to get some sleep before school!
So here of the photos, early migration as been pretty good so far here in Oak Park:
Female CEDAR WAXWING:
BROAD-WINGED HAWK, probably nested here this summer!
AMERICAN CROW, always a nice find in Oak Park these days:
OLIVE-SIDED FLYCATCHER, a pretty rare find and the first I have ever seen in Illinois!
YELLOW-BELLIED FLYCATCHER, another uncommon find! I believe I have only seen this bird twice before in my entire life!
So although it has been another hectic start to the school year, I have managed to squeeze a bit of pretty good birding in so far! Wednesday will be my first bird walk of the fall season so I will post about that soon - stay tuned!
