May brings birds in a big way. Have you seen any good ones? One sure 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.

A vicious cold ruined my weekend but at least my kids and I could enjoy Blue Jays up close and personal through our picture windows. Ivy is turning 4 at the end of the month and is eager to start her life list! Corey has also been sharing birds with his blood. His best bird of the weekend was a Blackburnian Warbler in North Lake State Park in New York’s Catskill Mountains.  It was best bird of the weekend not only because multiple singing Blackburnian Warblers on territory are inherently an amazing site, but because both of his parents managed to focus their binoculars on the gorgeous birds.  Now that is a family outing!

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.
