September brings birds in a big way. Have you seen any good ones? One sure way to heighten the pleasure of a special bird sighting is to brag about it later. Step right up and share your best bird of the weekend.

I was gratified to see at least one Chimney Swift has stuck around through mid-September and doubly pleased to see it while watching my son’s first Little League game. Corey’s best bird of the weekend was a surprise Buff-breasted Sandpiper at Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn. Charlie’s was also a sandpiper, specifically a Pectoral Sandpiper at Radipole RSPB in Dorset! Since Duncan Wright aka angrysunbird was with Charlie this weekend, we’ll announce his best as well, a Cetti’s Warbler at the same site!

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.
