Rare South American bird spotted in Chicago
CHICAGO – Bird watchers are flocking to Chicago to catch a glimpse of a rare bird.
Two teens spotted what appears to be a White-crested Elaenia early last week. If the American Birding Association confirms the sighting, it would be only the second one in the United States. The first was in Texas in 2008.
The tiny green-and-white bird with a white splotch on its crown is native to South America, some 7,000 miles away.
