One essential 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.

Of all the excellent early spring birds I saw at Montezuma NWR this weekend, my favorites were probably Snow Geese and Swamp Sparrows, though all those ducks were pretty welcome as well. Corey’s best bird of the weekend was his first-ever Black Brant in flooded Flushing Meadows Park during a lull in the Sunday morning rain.
