These are dark times, when the most I can muster for my best bird of the weekend is a mere Black-capped Chickadee. Even worse, Corey could only come up with a Northern Mockingbird chasing a Northern Cardinal, as if two common birds might add up to one more unusual sighting. Take pity on us, oh gods of birding, and deliver unto us warm weather and hot birds in abundance!

How about you? Did you do any better this weekend? 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.
