One certain 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.

My best birds this weekend were Ravens, honking through the icy valleys of Potter County, PA. I’d rather be bragging about the Northern Shrike I spotted at the top of a tree but by the time we stopped the car to confirm, it had departed. Corey’s best bird of the weekend was a Lesser Black-backed Gull at Jamaica Bay that he (claims to have) picked out in flight.  He might become a laridphile yet… We can only imagine what avian delights Charlie missed at Great Chalfield whilst attending to his pox-stricken daughter.

What was your best bird of the weekend? Tell us about the rarest, loveliest, or most fascinating bird you observed in the comments section. If you’ve blogged about your weekend experience, you should include a link in your comment.
