A couple weeks ago I went down to the lakefront before work, to reconnect with whatever crows I could find, and see if there were any interesting waterfowl present.

It was a nice, if crisply cold, sunny morning. New was the addition of some sculptures.

The revisions to the park where a lot of the crows used to hang out continued apace.

Not half as many crows as I had before the demolition of Daley Bicentennial Plaza began. I can only imagine they have dispersed up and down the lakefront.

In addition to the obligatory Canada Geese…

there were some Common Mergansers and a few Common Goldeneye too far away to photograph, but not much else.
