Nearly 350 kinds of birds have visited Chicago's Lincoln Park, one of the region's best places to see birds.

Join Geoff Williamson and other experienced bird watchers from the Chicago Ornithological Society on weekly bird walks around North Pond to observe and learn about our feathered neighbors. Each week may bring a different assortment of birds to view.

Dress for the weather and bring binoculars. The group meets at 7:00am by the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum at the southeast corner of North Pond (2430 N. Cannon Dr.), usually on the casting pier at the south end of the pond, but sometimes between there and the museum lobby.

All walks take place on Wednesday mornings starting at 7:00a.m. The walks last for about 2 hours, but participants can readily leave before the end if they need to.
