I don’t know how things are in your part of the world, but in my geographic proximity, people are freaking out. Much of the Mid-Atlantic is bracing for what has been endearingly termed a Frankenstorm. No wonder folks are hoarding water and batteries! On the bright side, a big storm tends to blow in bedraggled rarities…

This weekend, I was quite pleased to see that Dark-eyed Juncos have returned to my yard.  They seems pretty pleased to be on the property themselves! Corey’s Best Bird of the Weekend was actually a whole flock of birds. He was pleased to find at least 24 Eastern Meadowlarks taking advantage of the great habitat atop the (capped) Edgemere Landfill in the Rockaways in Queens.

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.
