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

My best bird was a Sharp-shinned Hawk standing vigil over my bird feeder. Unfortunately for the eager accipiter, the feeder hasn’t been filled for a while! Charlie founds favor with his first Great Chalfield Common Snipe. Alas for Corey, his best bird was was the Ivory Gull on his son’s Desmond’s onesie!
