Fall migration will be in full swing, and we will look for a variety of birds that are on their way south, including warblers, thrushes, and flycatchers. We stand an excellent chance to see Ruby-throated Hummingbirds. For more information, visit https://www.fieldmuseum.org/at-the-field/programs/birding-field. Walk leaders: Josh Engel, Robb Telfer, and Becky Collings
Join Forest Preserve Staff, Ecologists, and Bird Conservation Network Monitors at McGinnis Slough to learn about the Slough’s origin, history, and observe and understand why shorebirds (such as plovers and sandpipers) migrating south from their Arctic nesting grounds to their winter grounds in Central and South America are attracted to the mudflats exposed by the yearly drawdown of water in July. This shallow, 300-acre body of water serves also as an important migratory stopover for waders (such as herons and egrets) and waterfowl; the Forest Preserves’ waterfowl conservation efforts in the Palos area will also be discussed.
