More May Migrants

Oak Park, IL

rain 56 °F

FIRST OF ALL, tomorrow may just be my most exciting day of birding ever — though the weather looks rather lousy, me and two other young birders Isoo and Eddie will be birding around Cook County on a 24-hour planned big day in hopes of finding the most species possible in the county in one day!! Stay tuned!!

Some nice birds around Oak Park the past couple of days:

This PEREGRINE FALCON was an awesome sighting, only the second one I’ve ever seen from my yard. Fastest bird on earth!
