How was your weekend? Did the New Year bring you any good birds? Don’t be shy… tell us about your best bird!

My best bird of the weekend was a puffed-up, pink-billed Dark-eyed Junco in one of the English Yews in front of my dining room window. I missed my neighborhood snow birds! Corey’s best bird was a rather unexceptional Swamp Sparrow on the Queens County CBC. Charlie ushered 2010 in with the same birds he left behind in 2009 and refuses to play favorites.
