Neotropic Cormorant: Cook Co (North) - 1 has been quite regular for a few days at the Burnham Prairie Marsh (Sam Burkhardt). It was last seen on 6/11/10 (Brian Tang). This area is on 140th Street, east of Torrence, and south of Lake Calumet.

White-faced Ibis: Marshall Co (Central) - 1 was found in a large semi-permanent wetland off of Western Avenue out of Henry, IL on 6/7/10
(Mike Baum). The area is just east of 150E.

Orange-crowned Warbler: Cook Co (North) - 1 was seen and heard at the south end of Spring Creek Forest Preserve on 6/10/10 (Wendy Paulson). It was in the same area one was heard and seen in late May. The habitat is actually suitable for breeding Orange-crowned Warbler. If documented and accepted, I believe this would represent the latest spring/summer record. Please contact the compiler for more information on this bird.
