I was there in December and there wasn't much going on. I think it has potential for gulls and ducks in winter, maybe a Snowy Owl.

My numbers to eBird that include sightings from the harbor are reported as being in Burnham Park.

I haven't been there recently, however.

If I remember correctly from what Amar Ayyash told me on Christmas day (Chicago Lakefront CBC), the gulls there were mostly Ring-billeds.
