Field guide and checklist: Falcons and Hawks seen around Oak Park, Illinois

We developed a one-page field guide to some of the falcons and hawks that we have been seeing around Oak Park, Illinois, duirng the past yard. You can download a PDF version of the field guide by clicking here or on this photo:


There is also a simplified checklist version of the field guide, available here:


We used the falcons and hawks checklist as a scavenger hunt at Wonder Works, a Children’s Museum in Oak Park. The children searched the museum for small posters of the birds on the checklist. When they found a poster, they recorded its code on the checklist. You can download a (large) PDF of the nine posters here:
