Do you love your birds of summer? I sure hope so because they’ll be hanging around your neighborhood for a while yet. One sure way to heighten the pleasure of a special bird sighting is to brag about it later. Step right up and share your best bird of the weekend.

My best birds of the weekend were American Kestrels and Eastern Bluebirds in Batavia, NY. Corey’s best was a young Black-crowned Night-Heron that was more than willing to let him get some good digiscoped shots at Jamaica Bay’s Big John’s Pond.

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.
