Hello Shawn et al,
I was inside the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool (NE corner of Lincoln Park Zoo, Cook County) at the same time and yes, between 4-5:30 p.m. there did seem to be a tremendous wave of birds passing through.  I had 14 species of warblers, the highlights being male Hooded, Bay-breasted, Blackpoll, and Parula, and a Yellow-breasted Chat that jumped up into the low branches of a shrub right next to the trail and sat looking around in the sun. 

Wish I'd known about the Whistling Ducks and Western Tanager just a bit farther south, but still a magical time!
Good Spring birding,
Leslie BornsChicago/Cook

  Unfortunately, I have been unable to re-find the Tanager as of 4:50. Fortunately, I have found Lark Sparrow and Chat while searching. Birds are blowing off the lake here. The turn-over is pretty crazy right now.
