Under the guidance of Walter Marcisz, nine dedicated folks gathered at the Bridgeport branch of the Chicago Public Library on September 8 and started entering into eBird historical records of bird observations we received from Doug Anderson. We had a follow-up gathering at the library on October 13th. Currently, several people are continuing to enter records from the comfort of their homes. So far we have entered 360 checklists and have recorded 273 species for sites in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin.

There is still more to be done so if you would like to participate contact Sigrid Schmidt.
