The June Migration trickle is now more like a drip but the last couple of days have still tuned up some interesting late migrants or wandering birds at North Pond, Lincoln Park (Chicago).
I was only able to make it out in the afternoon yesterday (6/9/18) - best birds being Yellow-bellied Flycatcher, American Redstart, Eastern Wood-Pewee, Great Crested Flycatcher, 5 Warbling Vireo plus2 Purple Martin and 2 Cliff Swallow - both species I rarely see at this site.
This morning (6/10/18) in the rain - best birds - Canada Warbler, Eastern Bluebird, Red-bellied Woodpecker, Red-eyed Vireo, 6 Warbling Vireo. Yellow Warbler… The rain got heavy and forced me home after only completing half the circuit.
