Avery Posted February 23 Share Posted February 23 Hey all, I’m going to be visiting family in the Chicago Area for spring break (March 6-10) with ample time to bird. I’ve already got some spots picked out, and am keeping tabs on some rarities en route and in surrounding states. Here are my lifer targets: Greater Prairie-Chicken: two spots I’m checking on the drive up European Goldfinch: there’s a recent report of a large group nearby Monk Parakeet: I know where one colony is so this one should be simple Here are my hopeful lifer targets (recently reported rarities, or just tough birds): Smith’s Longspur Western Meadowlark Black-legged Kittiwake European Tree Sparrow (ABA) Of course there are lots of other cool species that I would love to see that I have seen already, but the list would be too long for here If anybody has any suggestions around northern Illinois, NW Indiana, and SE Wisconsin I am looking for suggestions! 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
