One certain way to heighten the pleasure of a special bird sighting is to brag about it later. Step right up and share your best bird of the weekend.

My best birds this weekend were a matched pair of Northern Cardinals, the male singing in the sun. Corey’s best bird of the weekend is, by his admission, a tie between American Robins and Red-winged Blackbirds, both harbingers of spring. We’ve no word yet on what seasonal specialties Charlie enjoyed this weekend.

Spring is springing!
