Fall Bird Walk Planned for Indian Boundary Park
A great egret has set up housekeeping at the Indian Boundary Park lagoon. If he hangs around until October 12th, he will be the highlight of the fall bird walk, sponsored by the park’s advisory council.
The 45-minute walk through the park will begin at 8 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 12, and spotters will be welcome to enjoy free coffee and baked goods in the fieldhouse afterwards.
David Willard of the Chicago Audubon Society will lead the walkers as he did during the April bird walk, when some 30 spotters identified five-dozen birds from 22 species.
Besides the great egret, other birds that spotters hope to see include the double-breasted cormorant, solitary sandpiper, and the yellow-rumped warbler.
No expertise in bird watching is needed to enjoy the walk.
