Aaron Has Reached His Goal! April 5, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — saltthesandbox @ 11:29 am

Late this morning Aaron, Ethan, and I birded Columbus Park on the far westside of Chicago. While exploring the woods and edge of the lagoon, Aaron saw first year bird #149, a Hermit Thrush, and then year bird #150, a Ruby-crowned Kinglet. He has reached his goal of seeing 150 year birds before the end of spring break!

And there’s still almost seven hours of daylight left. Where shall we go next? Aaron is arguing for Kane County, with a chance for a Black-necked Stilt, which was seen there yesterday. Ethan is arguing for Montrose Bird Sanctuary in Chicago, where rare birds often show up in the spring. Stay tuned…..
