How was your weekend? Did you have a better one that the Arizona Cardinals or Baltimore Ravens, both of whom washed out of the NFL playoffs?  Don’t be shy… tell us about your best bird!

My best birds were the Short-eared Owls I watched with Seth, Laura, and my new birding buddy, Debra. Corey finds it hard to play favorites after a successful pelagic excursion, but supposes Northern Gannet will do. Charlie’s bird bandwidth has mostly been devoted of late to Great Bustards (read that carefully), so they may qualify as his best of the weekend.

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, we invite you to include the link in your comment.
