#BirdThePreserves - Cook County’s Big Year @ Heller Nature Center

In 2016, Cook County Forest Preserves sponsored a #BirdthePreserves initiative that unleashed hundreds of birders on more than 20 of the county’s forest preserve sites to see what they could find. Field Museum conservation ecologist Doug Stotz will discuss new information about birds in the Chicago area yielded by this effort, including new insights into distribution, abundance, migration timing and breeding.
