Annual Illinois Ornithological Society event.

Pre-registration required. Watch the Lake Cook Audubon email or visit for details.  Attendance is limited. Members of Illinois Ornithological Society get advance opportunity to register.

The Gull Frolic is a unique winter event at Illinois’ premier gull-watching hotspot: NorthPoint Marina. Bring your binoculars, scope and cold weather gear, and join birders outside of the yacht club to enjoy close study of some of our harder-to-find winter species such as Iceland (Thayer’s Iceland and Kumlien’s Iceland) and Glaucous Gulls! A variety of waterfowl typically make an appearance too (scoters and other diving ducks), along with the occasional raptor, owl, or winter finch. Birders wearing bright orange hats will be available to help answer questions along the “boardwalk”.

Registration and tickets required.
