April 27 - Illinois Beach SP BioBlitz

MEET AT THE IBSP SOUTH PARKING LOT (http://tinyurl.com/yyo335qj) AT 7 AM.

As a partner for the Chicago Wilderness Region City Nature Challenge (CNC), Whimbrel Birders Club is excited to announce a BioBlitz will be held on Saturday, April 27th as a part of the CNC! On this walk, we will not only look for birds but any living thing! NOTE: We will be using iNaturalist (as well as eBird) to document any species that we may find, I suggest to download the app and familiarize yourself with iNaturalist before the walk (of course, this is all optional, although, it may make the walk more fun!). More info on iNaturalist can be found here: https://www.inaturalist.org/home

May 18 - Montrose Point

MEET AT MONTROSE POINT PARKING LOT (https://tinyurl.com/yxzbzvel) AT 7 AM

As Chicago's premier birding spot,  Montrose Point is an amazing spot in May and can sometimes produce 70 species in a day! Being a great spot for migrants, we will be looking for everything from vireos to warblers to thrushes!

To register for a walk, please email whimbrelbirders@gmail.com with the subject "RSVP for {trip name}"
