Was your weekend pleasingly full or pleasurably empty? We measure our happiness not in moments of activity but rather memories of satisfaction.

I was well satisfied to travel through farm country this weekend and count the many American Kestrels perched predatorily above the fields. Corey’s Best Bird of the Weekend was a Bushy-crested Jay, one of quote a few fine species he spotted while exploring the area around Copan Ruinas in Honduras.

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.
