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.
We've seen some Killdeer at two locations in Chicago: Montrose Beach (near the Magic Hedge) and Northerly Island. I like their very clean clear markings. They're fun to watch as well. They tend to run and then suddenly stop and sit. Apparently they stop to see if they've scared up any bugs to eat.
