How was your weekend? Any good birds? Tell us about your best bird.

My best bird of this busy weekend was the Northern Cardinal my daughter Ivy, all of three years old, identified by species and gender! Plus, she wanted me to add the bird to her as-yet-nonexistent life list. Corey’s best was the horde of Yellow-rumped Warblers at Prospect Park on Saturday morning; he’s missed those butterbutts. Charlie no doubt observed all sorts of sophisticated species this weekend, which I for one can’t wait to hear about.

What was your best bird of the weekend? Tell us about the rarest, loveliest, or most interesting bird you observed in the comments section. Plus, if you’ve blogged about your weekend experience, I invite you to include the link in your comment.
