Best Bird of the Weekend (First of August 2010)
Do you love your birds of summer? Enjoy them while they last; depending on where you live, they’ll be departing before you know it. Increase the pleasure of your special bird sightings by bragging about them here. Step right up and share your best bird of the weekend.
Despite being out and about this weekend, I hardly saw any birds. Odd, huh? An iridescent Common Grackle that my kids and I observed picking around the yard was as good as it got. Charlie didn’t fare much better at home in Wiltshire. Corey, on the other hand, has tons of hot birds to choose from; his best bird of the weekend were three Marbled Godwits at Jamaica Bay, not only his first Marbled Godwits ever in Queens, but, also, inexplicably, his first ever Marbled Godwits in New York State. Go figure.
