How was your weekend? Any good birds? (Turducken doesn’t count!) Don’t be shy… tell us about your best bird!

My best bird was Great Black-backed Gull on the Tappan Zee Bridge en route from NYC to Rochester; great black-backs always look so regal perched atop lightposts. Charlie contended with any number of common British backyard birds. Corey, however, far and away took the prize when a Shearwater landed in his Queens, NY apartment. We suspect that he’ll probably be Corey’s best bird of every weekend!
