Mike’s Thoughts: To me, the trembling song of the red-winged blackbird marks the beginning of spring in Chicago’s wetlands. At the end of a hectic day, I’ll come to McGinnis Slough to listen to their constant calls. I’ll take in the calming view of the sparkling waters, the numerous waterfowl, and the tall wading birds along the shores. My long days ends with a new beginning in dramatic performance, as blue water and sky turn to orange and gold.
