May is a great time to go birding in one of Chicago's many birding areas, including "The Hedge" at Montrose
Harbor, and the "Wooded Island" in Hyde Park.
The following is a list of birds we've seen during May, foreigners on
their way somewhere else: black-billed cuckoo, gray catbird, indigo
bunting, baltimore oriole, scarlet tanager, rose-breasted grosbeak,
spotted sandpiper, dunlin, ruby-crowned kinglet, blue-gray gnatcatcher
warblers: yellow-rumped, black and white, cape may, chestnut-sided,
magnolia, palm, red start, Wilson's, yellow-throat
