Wednesday Bird Walk

Oak Park, IL

rain 65 °F

Today, I led a morning bird walk starting from my house in Oak Park, IL.

It was a wet morning as we were treated to the outer remnant bands of recently-dissipated Hurricane Irma!

SWAINSON'S THRUSH abounded by the dozen - here is the most photogenic of them all as they tended to be quite elusive today:

We also saw quite a few unpictured warblers including REDSTART, MAGNOLIA, NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE, BAY-BREASTED, & OVENBIRD. Bird-of-the-day goes to the many Swainson's Thrush seen with runner-up to the semi-cooperative Ovenbird seen toward the end of the walk. Stay tuned!

Good birding,
Henry
