Winter drives sea ducks farther inland: Story I wrote for the Chicago Tribune on front page

More on the White-Winged Scoter phenomenon as it has occurred in Chicago, from Sheryl DeVore. Thank you, Sheryl!

I also heard on the radio this morning that the Great Lakes are more than 80% frozen, which adds another statistic to this report. And although I have found no dead birds, I have found two dead squirrels this winter, one in my basement stairwell a couple weeks ago and one on the sidewalk coming home last week.

I’ve never re-blogged before so I hope I’m doing this right!
