Did you see the supermoon eclipse last night? If you didn’t, you missed something very special. I would lay odds that we birders geek out to all manner of natural phenomena at a higher rate than almost any other group. What do you think?

The winds this weekend in western New York must have been favorable for migration, because the only nonresident I could track down was a Swainson’s Thrush. Corey’s Best Bird of the Weekend was one of the several Black Vultures that went overhead during a family hike to Anthony’s Nose in the Hudson Valley. The birding wasn’t very exciting but the hike was nice and allowed a nice view of Bear Mountain, the Bear Mountain Bridge, and the Hudson River.

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.
