Hi Birders!

I went birding today (with my son Dakota and my niece Sammie) at Kishwaukee River Forest Preserve and the Cicadas are sooo loud! We saw Baltimore Orioles, Red-eyed Vireos, Indigo Buntings, and a lot of other cool birds! We saw a bunch of Eastern Bluebirds feasting on the cicadas that were flying all over.

Monday, we went to Afton Forest Preserve in Dekalb County and found Sedge Wrens and Bobolinks! Dad came with on this trip and it was fun. I am always excited to find Bobolinks in Northern Illinois.
