Best Bird of the Weekend (Third of August 2010)
The days of summer are flying by, as are the birds of summer. Have you seen them? Increase the pleasure of your special bird sightings by bragging about them here. Step right up and share your best bird of the weekend.
I’ve been seeing plenty of White-breasted Nuthatches lately, including one inquisitive excavator exploring my vinyl siding. When I first heard the tapping, I imagined a Downy Woodpecker was the culprit, but then glimpsed the nuthatch abandoning its fruitless labors. Corey exulted in the many White-rumped Sandpipers at Jamaica Bay. As for Charlie, we’d be better off wondering what his best birder of the weekend was, considering his adventures at the British Birdfair!
