Weekends, you may have noticed, exhibit remarkable elasticity, capable of being stretched far beyond their normal boundaries. Many of you may still have a couple of more weekend days left to enjoy, but we should check in now for the sake of those less recreationally-endowed.

Corey spent the weekend being a tourist in Niagara Falls and Toronto so he didn’t see too many birds. Of those that he did see, he was most entertained by the legions of Ring-billed Gulls around Niagara Falls. They’re not rare or particularly pretty, but they are imbued with the essence of Niagara Falls. I also think gulls for the Falls, but the Great Lakes in summer are very much about Caspian Terns, which made the scene for me this weekend during a welcome respite from the endless Rochester rain.

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.
