Thought you might like to know I have just seen a Green-backed Heron along the Pagoda lake in Jackson Park. Have been walking there in the early mornings for many years and this is a first. Have seen many Great Blue Herons but never this little fellow. Guess he is making a stop-over on his way south.

Location: Jackson Park
