As spring migration starts picking up, so do the spring bird club field trips. Lake-Cook Audubon kicked off their 2010 field trip season with today’s Loons of Lake County lead by Fred and Cheri Thompson. We had 33 total species for the day, with nine FOY (First Of Year) birds, including Common Loon and Double-crested Cormorant. We also had our FOS (First of Season) big group of birders. 🙂
We found at least seven Common Loons on Diamond Lake
Cormorants and Great Blue Herons were starting to nest at Kemper Business Park
We had good looks at Bufflehead at several stops. I just love these guys!
