We got hooked on birdwatching and found there are a lot more birds in Chicago than pigeons, robins, mallards, Canadian Geese, gulls, and sparrows. I started taking pictures of them and ended up with far too many to post on my Chicago Daily Photo site. So I started this separate site just for the birds.
I was experimenting with the new camera. I wasn't LOOKING for birds. But there were several American Coots in DuSable Harbor and this one was putting on a little diving show. It really was just dumb luck that I ended up with this series.
