    I'm in Chicago for the next few days, so I took the time to do a species list for the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum! It's a smaller museum in Lincoln Park just north of the Lincoln Park Zoo, focusing on ecology and conservation. In addition to some great interactive exhibits, they have a nice little collection of local species, mostly herps and fish, as well as a lovely butterfly habitat, which is perfect for cold winter days like today. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

    European Goldfinch is pretty cool, that's one they didn't have last time I was here.
