Thank you, Carolyn.  Mary and I have kept in touch since she and her family left Chicago in 2008.  For those who never knew her, Mary Van Haaften was one of the first Natural Area Managers in the Chicago Park District's newly formed Department of Natural Resources in 2000-2001, and she was instrumental in designating Montrose Beach Dunes a protected habitat and recruiting me and others as stewards and volunteers.  She was a joy to work with and left an indelible mark on the Chicago landscape and those lucky enough to work with her.
Regards,
/Leslie

Subject: IBET Montrose PipingPlover continues and a records update     Dear Ilbirds et al.,   The unbanded Piping Plover was present again today at Montrose Beach , feeding in a large fluddle with aflock of Dunlin and Sanderling.  The plover has been at Montrose for 12days (since October 15) and this is the latest record we have for a PipingPlover here.  This small, pale shorebird species is both state andfederally endangered, and it's thrilling that it is finding the Montrose habitatso inviting.  Much of this is due to the hard work and cooperation overthe past year+ of Chicago Park District Security staff, 19th District ChicagoPolice, and birder and natural area advocates, who together have made greatstrides in enforcement of the offleash dog and other ordinances at the beachand natural areas.  At this time, the entire beach is excellent stopoverhabitat and we hope these conditions continue.



Some have asked about state records, and recently Al Stokie, Luis Munoz , and Geoff Willianson did a littledigging re. the latest fall date for Piping Plover in Illinois .  Here's what they found:   Charlie Clark observed a Piping Plover in Lake County November 9& 10, 1973.   H. David Bohlen observed plovers on November 9-21, 1982 (Mendota),and on November 13, 1982, (LaSalle).   Since the Montrose bird is unbanded, we're not sure where itoriginated, but hopefully it will stay here resting and refueling as long as itwants before continuing its southward migration to its wintering grounds.   GREAT fall birding,   Leslie Borns Chicago/Cook
