Spring Warblers in Chicago, May 2023

Chicago is an excellent place to witness spring warbler migration, with as many as 30 species of warblers passing through. On this IFO tour, we learn about warbler identification, behavior, habitat, and conservation through field trips and workshops that are designed to be complementary, with the lessons learned in the classroom applicable in the field, and vice versa.

Uganda is one of the most beautiful and biodiverse countries in Africa.

Rare Bird Alert: February 14, 2020

Last week's Siberian Accentor (ABA Code 4) in Washington joins the familiar La Sagra's Flycatcher (4) in Florida and long-staying Garganey (4) in California in the continuing category. The Accentor appears to be pretty pretty reliable these days, which is fantastic for all the birders who have made the trip to see this stunning east Asian vagrant.

How to Know the Birds: No. 20, Alien Fairies in the Big City

Before we proceed any further, let’s play a little game. Let’s pretend we don’t know where we are. We scan around for clues and we see: Rush hour traffic—check. Pedestrians—check. Palm trees—check. Tall buildings—check. So far, so good. We’re plausibly in any one of those five densely populated cities. Now take a look directly overhead:
