Where on Cook County are you? I had at least 2 in Glenview on 1 July.

Later there were a family (presumed) of chickadees in our ponderosa pine so I was watching them. Then I thought there was a nuthatch, but it was "too small," and it didn't "act right" (more like a foraging chickadee) so I figured it was one of the chickadees (no bins). I took some video of said nuthatch and I'm just watching it now and it's a freaking red-breasted nuthatch. O.M.G.
