Farwell Pier Migratory Bird Nesting Area.

"I think a sticker will look just smashing right there darling!"
"Right you are funny old chap."

                 These pictures are from 2-11-13. Found some birds resting on the north side of the breakwaters and using it as windbreak. Was too treacherous to walk all the way out to the pier due to the melting ice. It wasn't that cold out this past Sunday but you definitely felt it at the lakefront.

                    You are not supposed to bring dogs into this Loyola Beach Dune area because you would then scare off the birds. Reading through the priority mail sticker we see that volunteer days for working on the Loyola Dunes are on the fourth Saturday of every month in April, May, June, July, August, September and October. The meeting times are 930 to 1230 am. Volunteers meet at the west end of the pier just north and east of Pratt boulevard.
