Best Bird of the Weekend (Last of August 2010)
The bad news is that summer is almost over. On the other hand, birding is getting interesting again in many parts of the world, including mine. How about yours? Please share the fascinating details of your best bird of the weekend…
I have a few standouts to choose from but fall in favor of the ominous kettle of Turkey Vultures wheeling over my gym on Sunday; people must be working out pretty hard in order to generate thermals, right? Corey’s best bird of the weekend was any of the three shearwater species he spotted on the CRESLI pelagic trip (finally!), though the Thick-billed Parrots at the Queens Zoo (part of a captive-breeding program) were, in his words, pretty darn cool too.
