I have received a report of a LIMPKIN at a private residence on Borah Lake in Richalnd County just north of Olney in southern Illinois. The bird has been present since approximately June 20th. The homeowner notified me that the bird typically visits the property in the mornings and evenings foraging along the shoreline. The homeowner lives along E Westpoint Ln, but this is a private road. The best location to view the bird may be from a public boat launch which is just across the lake from the cove where the homeowner lives. Photos of the bird and viewing locations have been posted to the Illinois Rage Bird Alert facebook page.
