64. Barrington Spring Bird Walks with Wendy Paulson

Home Newsroom 64. Barrington Spring Bird Walks with Wendy Paulson

A true harbinger of spring arrived in my email inbox today when Citizens for Conservation sent this year’s schedule of Barrington Spring Bird Walks and Hikes led by area naturalist and birder, Wendy Paulson.

Black-capped Chickadee

Co-sponsored by Audobon Chicago Region and Citizens for Conservation, these bird walks are a great way to get to know nearby nature with Wendy who is a true expert when it comes to bird and wildlife residents of the Barrington area.

From the black-capped chickadee to the bobolink to the eastern bluebird and great egret, we’ve loved learning more about the Birds of Barrington in Wendy’s regular series of bird profiles here at 365Barrington.com.

Here’s a good way to enjoy the weekend… Find a way to bring laughter to those you are hanging around on these winter cold days.

Hugo’s words are so magical. 💙 To say I’m a fan is an understatement. Like seriously, how many times is too many when it comes to watching les miserable? 🙈
.
Hugo’s French romantic words are found throughout his poems and novels and are considered some of the best writings in history. If ever I were to fill a wall up with great quotes I’m guessing the majority would be his. If you are looking for profoundly inspiring words, read some of his works….it’s some of the best reading you’ll read and it’s a perfect way to spend a cozy winter day.
.
Have a blessed weekend! ❄️
