A Caspian Tern was sitting / standing on Highland st in Downers grove, south of 83rd st. I was driving a pick up truck for work . Almost hit the bird, going 15 mph , had to swerve ! Got out of the truck wondering if it was ok, also to take a close up camera phone picture. I was thinking that the bird would stay put for me and my camera as it did so for a 3000 lb red truck. Well that was not to be.
Bird of the day - that Tern that just got a tick for my Illinois plates ?
