Barrington, Illinois – Crabtree Nature Center

This was my first visit to Crabtree Nature Center. I went with my fiancee. We were standing on an observation platform looking out at a large field near the apple orchard.  An Eastern Kingbird flew toward us followed closely by a Barn Swallow.  The kingbird landed in an apple tree in the orchard.
