How was your weekend? Any good birds? Tell us about your best bird.

I never made it down to Pennsylvania as anticipated so I had to content myself with birds from my own backyard; fortunately, Tufted Titmice made scintillating company. Corey thought his best birds of the weekend would be Eastern Meadowlark and Vesper Sparrow for his Queens County list, but that was before he made a successful run for the upstate New York Swainson’s Hawk. Can’t wait to hear about that twitch! Charlie, alas, was too occupied with matters both mundane and meaningful this weekend and failed to notch a significant sighting.

What was your best bird of the weekend? Tell us about the rarest, loveliest, or most interesting bird you observed in the comments section. Plus, if you’ve blogged about your weekend experience, I invite you to include the link in your comment.
