Best Bird of the Weekend (Second of October 2011)
What a weekend. New Yorkers enjoyed gorgeous, summer weather and will next enjoy a growing sense of dread as temperatures first wane then plummet. What did you enjoy this weekend?
The best birdof my weekend was a Brown Creeper that hung around long enough for me to share with generally nature-numb friends and family; what’s more fun than pulling back the curtain and showing people the world that whirls unnoticed all around them? Corey can’t choose between three choice sparrows spotted in Queens. Then again, anyone would struggle selecting from Lark, Vesper, and Nelson’s Sparrow.
