Visit Chicago: Montrose Point Bird Sanctuary

We had some time to kill before checking in to our hotel, so we walked through Montrose Point Bird Sanctuary.  

It's an easy stroll along the paved paths throughout the bird sanctuary, where you can see a variety of foliage.
We did see a few birds as well, but most of them were flying high above and hard to see within the trees.

The area was originally the location of Army barracks, and certain plants were grown to hide the barracks from view.  These plants attracted hundreds of birds.  After the Army left, more shrubs and trees were planted.

We saw hundreds of wildflowers and, as usual, I was drawn to the colorful plants.

The paths continue on to the shore, where you can get a nice view of the city.

The Montrose Point Bird Sanctuary was a nice way to spend some time outdoors in Chicago!
