Barrington, Illinois — Crabtree Nature Center
This day was really getting interesting. I decided to go around the trail one more time. I spotted the Wood Thrush perched in a bush at the edge of the woods near Turkey Foot Prairie. It was back in a few feet, and I couldn’t get a very good look at it. When I bent down for a better view, it flew off.
