How was your weekend? Any good birds? Tell us about your best bird.

My weekend was predictably devoid of wildlife watching so my best birds were probably the team of Philadelphia Eagles that got romped by the Raiders. Sweet! This almost soothes the loss suffered by my beloved Giants.  Corey’s best sighting of the weekend was a horde of Chipping Sparrows, 57 chippies to be exact, at the eastern extremity of Forest Park in the one hour of birding he did this weekend.  But though he looked and looked, he could not find a Lark Sparrow among them. Charlie is hoping he and Corey have better luck looking for Saltmarsh Sparrows today…
