Christine and Geoffrey Williamson led a group of about 20 individuals around Montrose Point in Chicago's Lincoln Park this morning (Saturday, 26 July 2014), and we located 38 species of birds. We spent some time looking at the 64 shorebirds (of six species) at the beach, which included the following:
Semipalmated Plover 3
Spotted Sandpiper 6
Least Sandpiper 1
Semipalmated Sandpiper 8
We also saw a RUBY-THROATED HUMMINGBIRD and a LEAST FLYCATCHER.
The complete list plus photos are available at Geoff's website.
