Do you love your birds of summer? Enjoy them while they last; depending on where you live, they’ll be departing before you know it. Increase the pleasure of your special bird sightings by bragging about them here. Step right up and share your best bird of the weekend.

I was most pleased by the Ospreys and Great Black-backed Gulls perched proudly on the awe-inspiring Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel (once included among the Seven Engineering Wonders of the Modern World!) while driving home from a Virginia Beach vacation. Corey, curse his soul, overtook me once again in our ABA-list competition by bagging Black-bellied Whistling Duck at Jamaica Bay.
