Best Bird of the Weekend (Fourth of June 2017)
Add this weekend to the lengthening list of those that seem to encompass more than one season. While I enjoyed some summer sun and heat at some points, others felt unpleasantly autumnal in terms of chill. How can anyone argue against climate change when climate consistency seems to be a relic of the past?
Driving along the NYS Thruway during a picture perfect June morning delivered Ospreys soaring over Montezuma NWR. Corey’s Best Bird of the Weekend was a Seaside Sparrow he watched for an extended period from a blind at Two Mile National Wildlife in Wildwood, New Jersey. Corey especially appreciated the quantity and variety of bugs it brought to its hidden nest to feed nestlings.
