Playing the Steinway II


Playing the Steinway II, originally uploaded by Jim Frazier.

I had the opportunity to visit and photograph the Peoples Church of Chicago as part of my informal project of photographing Unitarian/Universalist churches. I was given a tour by the congregation's pianist. The building was originally called the Uptown Temple, designed by J.E.O. Pridmore, and was built in 1925.

The Lion of Cantigny


The Lion of Cantigny, originally uploaded by Jim Frazier.

This is a new sculpture that they've installed at the visitor center to commemorate the battle of Cantigny in WW1 and the "Black Lions", the 28th Infantry Regiment of the 1st Division, that bore the brunt of the fighting. The artist is Stephen Spears. Cantigny was the first American victory of World War 1

From the monthly field trip (and Flickr WSCF meetup) on February 14, 2009 at Cantigny Park in Wheaton, Illinois cantigny.org

Ten days ago, I got some redpolls at this feeder. Today I got a nice picture of a Pine Siskin.

I like this feeder. Thanks, Jeff for putting this baby up!

Common Redpoll


Common Redpoll, originally uploaded by Jim Frazier.

Common Redpolls are really good finds for birders in the Chicago area. They only come this far south in the occasional winter and this is one of them. They are being seen all over. I have a birder friend at Cantigny, and he emailed me that these were coming to the thistle feeder near the visitor center. I had a chance to get over there this afternoon, and luckily, they were there. And let me get pretty close as well.
