Two walks in one day!

Cook County, IL

sunny 78 °F

Today, I had the great pleasure of leading two Oak Park Bird Walks!

The first, at Columbus Park this morning, was absolutely hopping with warblers though unfortunately most of them were flyovers, too quick to identify. Thankfully, we still saw a nice cross-section of birds including a view goodies. I posted my photos from this walk to the walk’s eBird.org checklist for your viewing pleasure here:



My second walk was rescheduled from yesterday as yesterday was quite stormy (though ironically not during the time the walk was supposed to happen!). A list with bird photos from this second walk of the day can be viewed at the ebird checklist here:

Bird-of-the-day to the CLAY-COLORED SPARROW from this evening which tripped the eBird rare bird alert! It is quite an uncommon species in the fall and a great find for sure. Runner up to the GOLDEN-WINGED WARBLER this morning.

And we ended the evening walk with a nice look at the crescent moon.

Stay tuned — one more walk on thursday morning before I head off to NYC later that day!

Good birding,
