Wouldn’t it be nice if, considering how special weekends are to most of us, we each learned something new every weekend? This weekend was actually quite educational for me… I learned yet again what a fickle mistress traffic can be in a big city. No, this isn’t a birding-related insight, but a life lesson to be sure. Have you learned anything new lately?

The best birds of my weekend were Double-crested Cormorants winging over New Jersey’s Meadowlands as I left Sunday’s Giants game. Corey’s BBOTW was an Orange-crowned Warbler at the Quaker Ridge Hawkwatch in Greenwich, Connecticut.

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.
