Birding by the River

Neighbor birding enthusiast Sigrid Schmidt recently shared with us her list of 123 species of birds she has seen along the north branch of the Chicago River near Horner Park.

We hope to add some more relevant naturalist information, particularly as the riverfront restoration progresses– please send us your thoughts and notes, and let us know if you’d like to contribute to this ongoing documentation effort!
