How was your weekend? Any good birds? Don’t be shy… tell us about your best bird!

My best bird was a Sharp-shinned Hawk in my front yard, stalking my bird-barren bird feeder. I wouldn’t even have noticed the hawk had it not been persuaded to abandon its perch by a crow, no doubt in an act of indirect vengeance against the local, crow-eating Red-tailed Hawks. The answer to both Corey’s best bird and photo of the weekend is “Ipswich Savannah Sparrow” which he spotted out at Breezy Point. Charlie is still up to his elbows in Great Bustard business.

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