I walked around Montrose Point in Chicago this morning, January 11. It felt more like mid-April, with temps in the 50s, but the birds reminded me that it's still winter. My best find was a Northern Shrike in the dunes. It flew off to the west after a bit and I never saw it again. I also had a male and female Northern Pintail in the harbor.
