Evening at the Meadow

Miller Meadow Forest Preserve, IL

sunny 70 °F

Last Thursday, I led an evening bird walk for nighthawks and screech owls at Miller Meadow Forest Preserve in Maywood, IL.

We were treated to a beautiful pink sky.

Buck White-tailed Deer:

That green speck is the eyes of an EASTERN SCREECH-OWL illuminated by my flashlight! We saw two of these guys on the walk!

Bird-of-the-day goes to the screech owl with runner-up to the COMMON NIGHTHAWKS which also flew over periodically during the walk.

Good birding,
