At the south unit of Illinois Beach State Park in the woodlands were calling birds Great Crested Flycatchers, a Brown Thrasher and a Yellow-breasted Chat. Also saw an Orchard Oriole, Brewer's Blackbirds, and Eastern Towhee. An Eastern Meadowlark and two Sandhill Cranes were in the grassland and a Spotted Sandpiper at the mouth of the Dead River. A Caspian Tern flew around by the lake. Overhead a Vulture glided around and also a Snipe flew around high in the sky. Not a bad morning with the migrants being gone.
