The Village Winter Bird Walk

Saturday, February 8, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am


Members & guests—free. To register, please scroll down or call the Village office at 773.248.8700.

Join Village member David Baker for a brisk walk at Montrose Point and perhaps other sites to enjoy the lakefront in winter and look for wintering ducks and other species of birds we only see at this time of year. These ducks breed on the Arctic and come to Chicago to get warm and get something to eat! They include scaups, golden eyes, buffleheads and mergansers, all beautiful in their newly fledged feathers. We also may see tree sparrows, snow buntings and an owl or two. Dress warm and wear boots.
