The shortest month of the calendar year tends to be one of the less birdy as well. Still, twenty-eight days hardly suffice when the world offers so much to see.

As promised, I teased a single Iceland Gull out of an endless horde of more common gulls. To keep the good times rolling, I spent the rest of the weekend watching paint dry and water boil. Corey saw quite a few quality birds on his trip to the southeastern United States in the last week but he best bird he saw that fits the criteria of having been seen on the weekend was a nice Sora in the early morning sunlight at Savannah National Wildlife Refuge’s Laurel Hill Wildlife Drive. It is his Best Bird of the Weekend as a rail must always be when it gives good looks.

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.
