At least 2 Green Heron chicks were seen today along with 2 adults. New watchers came out from Oak Park and Pennsylvania. I wonder if the Chicago Park District and Jackson Park Advisory Committee are aware that the birders are the most numerous walkers on Wooded Island. Every Wednesday and Saturday all year round the birders walk the island. In late April through May birders arrive daily to view migrant birds. Again in September birders can be found almost every day on the island. The birders watch birds, botanize and observe insects.
