I was conducting point counts in conjunction with the Audubon Climate Watch surveys this afternoon at Skokie Lagoons (from Willow Road). While I didn't locate any of the focal species (White & Red-breasted Nuthatches) I did find a flock of 25 or so COMMON REDPOLLS. Within the flock was one that I felt leaned towards HOARY REDPOLL. Here's a link to all the photos I took of the flock as well as a few of a BROWN CREEPER. The possible HORE is marked as Redpoll sp in the photos - I also submitted the photos in my ebird checklist. Any feedback is welcomed.
