This first weekend of September is still in motion for many of us, which makes our review of best birds slightly premature. Keep in mind, though, that birders bird always, not just on Saturday and Sunday. Feel free to wait until day’s end to post your best, or just keep doing your thing regardless of the day of the week.

I enjoyed seeing American Goldfinches scour the last shards of seed from my coneflowers, which I’ve delayed cutting back until the birds seemed satisfied. Corey spent the weekend visiting his folks upstate and suffering from the symptoms of food poisoning. Mostly what he looked at was the inside of his own eye lids and the interior of bathrooms. He thinks at one point he heard a Fish Crow, so that must be 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.
