Overcast, light winds, mid to upper 40's, hazy. I checked the beach, Dunes, peripheral plantings, Magic Hedge, Butterfly Garden, and harbor, and scanned Lake Michigan from the base of the fishing pier. Noticeable influx of American Robins, blackbirds, and several sparrows. Also, good numbers of ducks on Lake Michigan and a few migrating north. Several personal FOS's. Lake Michigan was calm but the hazy conditions made identifying distant birds challenging.

The city of Chicago closed Montrose and other lakefront parks on March 26, 2020 because of the coronavirus outbreak. This will be my last eBird entry for a while.
