As spring migration heats up across the northern hemisphere every weekend is bringing more first-of-season birds through parks and backyards.  Of course, these sightings will only matter to you unless you decide to share your best bird of the weekend.

My best birds were the Tree Swallows swooping with vernal abandon over a local pond. Clearly great minds think alike, as Corey’s favorites were his first-of-the-ear Barn Swallows and Bank Swallow at Flushing Meadows Park in the drizzlymist Saturday morning. Charlie may be too busy enjoying the clear skies over his home to pay attention to birds.

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.
