While we in the United States celebrated Father’s Day this weekend, the rest of the world just celebrated the weekend. Saturday and Sunday seem to stand on their own merits for purposes of revelry and relaxation. Maybe next year we can move Father’s Day to some part of the week that needs a shot of fun. Father’s Tuesday, anyone?

I enjoyed my special day in the company of my special ones, though their limited energy for hiking meant that we missed the special birds at Powder Mill Park. However, even a Great Blue Heron increases in significance when shared with a daughter with a burgeoning interest in birds. Though Corey had a bunch of birds to choose from as his Best Bird of the Weekend he was most pleased to come across a Green Heron against a cloudy sky at Cow Meadow Park and Preserve on Saturday morning. How can his favorite bird posed nicely not be his Best Bird of the Weekend?

How about you? 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.
