How was your weekend? Mine was fun and footballtastic. In fact, a game is on even as I write this, which means I’ve got no time for idle banter. The best birds of my weekend were Seahawks, Eagles, Falcons, Cardinals, And Ravens. Am I the only one here excited about the return of NFL football?

Corey had a hard time choosing his best bird of the weekend.  There was the White Ibis in New Jersey, the Caspian Tern, the Buff-bellied Sandpiper, another White Ibis, this one in New York’s Orange County, a Bald Eagle, and a host of other birds.  But the birds he most appreciated were three American Golden Plovers, two of which are pictured below:
