Field guide and checklist: Birds to Look for this Winter around Oak Park, Illinois

We developed a one-page field guide to some of the birds that we have been seeing in Oak Park, Illinois, this winter. 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 winter birds 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:
