The question is rarely whether someone enjoys an August weekend but rather how much. Share the details!

Ivy and I tracked down her first Wilson’s Snipe this weekend. Imagine that… a successful snipe hunt. Corey spent the first half of the weekend finishing up his family trip in southern California and the rest of it getting back to New York and recovering from a red eye. But on Friday evening he and Daisy visited Irvine Regional Park at dusk and were rewarded with Lesser Nighthawks, a lifer and an awesome Best Bird of the Weekend.

How about you? What was your best bird of the weekend? Tell us in the comments section about the rarest, loveliest, or most fascinating bird you observed. If you’ve blogged about your weekend experience, you should include a link in your comment.
