A friend at work told me about a rookery off Rand Road in Des Plaines. She lives nearby and has observed several nests with recently hatched young. I have not been there, but she felt it was safe to post this location for anyone interested.
South of River Road on Rand, turn off onto Hawthorne Road and take it to Big Bend Road. Continue to the end of the road. You can also just google Big Bend Road, Des Plaines to get your own directions.
Please be respectful of the rookery and neighbors.
