How was your weekend? Any good birds? Tell us about your best bird.

My best bird of the weekend was White-crowned Sparrow; I encountered both an adult and a first winter bird while discovering a local patch where half-hardies seem to be hunkering down for winter. Corey’s best was Bufflehead back at Jamaica Bay, where a flock of twelve produced his first buffalo heads since April. Charlie was chuffed to spy his first Peregrine Falcon at Great Chalfield.

What was your best bird of the weekend? Tell us about the rarest, loveliest, or most interesting bird you observed in the comments section. Plus, if you’ve blogged about your weekend experience, I invite you to include the link in your comment.
