Montrose Point Bird Sanctuary

Time Out says

Expert and amateur birders alike will delight in this 15-acre lakefront bird sanctuary nestled in the northern stretches of Lincoln Park, a frequent resting point for more than 300 species of migratory birds. You're sure to get some good birding in no matter what, but the avian hot spot of the sanctuary is a row of shrubs and trees dubbed "The Magic Hedge," where catbirds, common yellowthroats, purple martins, many types of warblers and hosts of other birds stop by or nest for the season. At the nearby Montrose Beach, the endangered (and very adorable) piping plovers are known to lay eggs; if you spot them, maintain your distance and admire the feathered creatures from afar. Don't forget your binoculars!
