April 22, 2007
Countering yesterday's comments about the spring cold in Chicago, today's weather has been balmy and I showed up at Montrose wearing one too many layers. We tallied 29 bird species plus two eastern cottontails and a raccoon. Highlights included the first ovenbird of the season, first blue-gray gnatcatcher and two eastern meadowlarks in the dune area.
