How was your potentially three-day weekend? Any good birds? Tell us about your best bird.

My best bird was Killdeer; I’m still amazed at how common these noisy shorebirds are in my little slice of suburbia. Corey’s fave was a full adult Bald Eagle flying over the Hudson River at the Saugerties Lighthouse (a pretty cool place if you’ve never been.) Charlie trumped us both with a juvenile Red Kite floating serenely over Great Chalfield
