Franklin's Gull (first cycle), Chicago, Illinois, Montrose Beach, Septemebr 16, 2020

The Montrose Birding Blog
Late September is the time of the year when Franklin's Gulls start to show up on Chicago lakefront beaches. Large numbers, sometimes in the dozens, can occur in October, especially after strong west winds. Checking groups of Ring-billed Gulls is the best way to find them.

Buff-breasted Sandpipers, Chicago, Illinois, Montrose Beach, August 27, 2019

The Montrose Birding Blog
Buffies are one of the rarer and more sought-after shorebirds we get at Montrose Point in Chicago. They always generate a lot of excitement in the birding community. They’re also usually tame and approachable, as the photo suggests.

Willet, Chicago, Illinois, Montrose Point, August 19, 2020

The Montrose Birding Blog
Willets are one of the earliest southbound migrant shorebirds we see in Chicago. Adults start to appear in late June and early July, followed by juveniles in August. Their migration is largely finished by early September. This juvenile was wading in the pool of water on Montrose Beach we call Lake Montrose.
