How was your potentially three-day weekend? Any good birds? Tell us about your best bird.

My weekend in Potter County, PA has been pretty rich from a birding perspective. I look forward to sharing photos of many of my favorite sightings, especially the gaggle of grouse that we encountered. Without a doubt, Ruffed Grouse is my best bird of the weekend, particularly since I saw at five of these normally elusive birds! Corey’s best bird of the weekend was the American Golden Plover at Jamaica Bay, an unexpected sighting I for one look forward to hearing about. I’m not exactly sure which bird was best for Charlie, but I’m sure he didn’t gaze at any grouse…
