The photos on this website were taken as Eric Gyllenhaal did his once-a-week bird monitoring at Douglas Park. Eric monitors birds as a volunteer for the Chicago-area Bird Conservation Network.
Since there are a lot more photos of birds than other creatures, birds get four separate pages on this website, one for each season. You can use menu links to see photos of birds that use the park in Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring.
