Last year, 181 participants in the Cook County portion of the Illinois Spring Bird Count found 208 species, one off the county record of 209, set in 2015. This year’s count will be held on May 4th, and we certainly hope that a number of our Chicago Audubon members, and other local birders can take part again.
Part of the Compelling Voices in Birding and Conservation series at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, delve into the difficult, soul-searching questions we must confront in the Anthropocene era about what we can and should do for birds on the brink of extinction.
All Chicago Audubon Society (CAS) members are encouraged to join us as we honor people and organizations who have made valuable contributions to conservation, the protection of migratory birds and other wildlife
