Happy Pi Day! Once you’re done celebrating this magical number, you should beware the Ides of March. Then commence donning of the green for St. Patrick’s Day… with all of these festive days to observe, it’ll be next weekend before you know it.

An enjoyable late day walk at Durand Eastman Park uncovered more species than expected, but my favorite were two brilliant Eastern Bluebirds. Corey enjoyed the weekend’s warm weather and took the morning on Saturday to look for early migrants. The best of those that he found and the Best Bird of the Weekend for him was an Eastern Meadowlark on the soccer fields at Fort Tilden which showed no fear as Corey digiscoped it from the comfort of his car.

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.
