A BINAC crew was keen to discover if the strong warbler migration on the lakefront over the last few days was also occurring at Northerly Island. So, we showed up at about 7:30 this morning to check it out, but we were turned away by the Chicago Police Department, who told us that the whole area east of the Shedd was closed!!!!!
Of course, the large semi-trailer carrying concert equipment to the sold-out Jack Johnson concert (who the hell is that????) was let through.
The score is now Clear Channel Northerly Island Pavilion 2, Birders 0!
