September brings birds in a big way and with every week, the autumn action intensifies. 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.

Although Blue Jays are common all year round in NY, I find them most interesting this time of year as they stream towards the south in large, noisy waves. Corey’s best bird was a small flock of about five (four female and one male) Black-throated Blue Warblers foraging together at Alley Pond Park.  But really, none of us got out and about this weekend.

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.
