Days in the Northern Hemisphere are getting longer. Did that help or hinder your efforts to see superior birds this weekend?

My weekend itinerary only permitted highway birding, of which the best result was Ospreys, both in flight and on those enormous nest of branches those birds construct. Corey didn’t have any luck trying to track down rare terns to add to his Queens list this weekend but he did add a bird to his list of species photographed in Queens. A pair of Purple Martins nesting in Broad Channel were his 292nd species photographed in his home borough, making them easily his 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.
