To continue my assertion before the weekend began, March may be one of the most boring months of the year for birding. However, just as a bad day of fishing beats a good day at work for many anglers, even a boring birding month offers excitement. Did you find any this weekend?

So far this year, my daughter and I have gone 3 for 3 with owls. This weekend’s quarry was a gorgeous Northern Saw-whet Owl at Braddock Bay’s Owl Woods, which is as good a place to find them as you’d imagine. Corey enjoyed a Saturday morning getting out and about to spots in coastal Queens. His Beat Bird of the Weekend was any of the three American Woodcocks he heard peenting early in the morning, his first of the year.

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.
