Subject: IBET Cook, Kendall, Dekalb, Kane, and Will County Shorebird Search from 29 July 2017
Steve H. and I started at 5:30 am and covered around 290 miles of driving,
ending the day around 8 pm. We covered the Lake Michigan lake shore in the
morning and then moved inland looking for shorebirds. Not much on the lake
shore, but the rest of my lists are below.

Here is an annotated map of basically all the locations we checked:
