We asked for your best sightings, and here’s what you shared
What is the most amazing, unusual or memorable thing you’ve ever witnessed a wild animal do in the forest preserves? We asked Forest Preserve staff and our Facebook community, and you had some wild stories, mostly about birds and mammals, and many involving animals caught in the act of eating one another. A lot of stories came from our naturalists, who spend the better part of each day in the preserves.
What’s clear is that there’s a lot of cool stuff happening out there, and you can see it if you’re observant and lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time.
