Skywatch at IBSP

As part of the Illinois Beach State Park Hawkwatch 10th anniversary celebration, we attended a morning bird walk that followed the path leading from the Hawkwatch pavilion. It was a cold morning and started out a bit overcast, but soon the sun was shining.

One tree held a family or families of Bluebirds. There were about ten birds in a single tree. I’d never seen so many at the same time before.


Some trees were just starting to turn.

Towards the end of the path we spotted a sparrow which we determined to be a Lincoln’s. Life bird!

    That looks like a beautiful park to take a walk in, especially on such a bright sunny autumn day.
