Wildlife sightings at Nature Boardwalk at Lincoln Park Zoo slow down in winter, but the zoo's urban wildlife biologists still survey the site daily...and make some interesting finds. Here are a couple highlights shared by Coordinator of Wildlife Management Mason Fidino.
A coyote track on the snow in early February. It's not the first time coyotes have been spotted at Nature Boardwalk.
A black-crowned night heron swoops over the pond. Most herons migrate away, but a few have been spotted overwintering at the pond in recent years.
A zoo camera trap spots a sora. These secretive water birds are tough to spot, but one was IDed at Nature Boardwalk back in May.
