What a weekend. Exciting avian activity occurred all across America and undoubtedly beyond. Were you a part of any of it?

Weekends where Corey and I both take down life birds are far too rare these days, but we just enjoyed one. I finally found my first Pine Grosbeak after watching waves of irrupting winter finches all week long. Corey paid his dues too, investing 15 hours in the search for the vagrant Virginia’s Warbler in Queens before finally spotting his quarry…
