Pretty much all over the world, birds are on the move and if you live in the Northern Hemisphere, you’ll never see better looking songbirds than right now. So where are you going birding this weekend? Comment below on the excitement you have planned.

A quorum of the 10,000 Birds team will be visiting upstate New York, which means we’ll be crossing the Westchester county line. I’ll be doing a lot of highway birding back and forth to Rochester while Corey and Will are planning a Century Run-style Albany extravaganza. If I don’t miss my guess, Charlie will be kicking around Cape Town or someplace preposterous like that.

Whether I’ll be birding or not, I really enjoy hearing about people’s plans to get outside and experience nature. I suspect many of you might feel the same, or at least appreciate the opportunity to gloat. Consequently, I’d like to make Where Are You Birding This Weekend? a recurring question. Since this question makes the most sense at the end of the traditional workweek, it dovetails nicely with a cool new community activity called Sky Watch Friday, hosted graciously over at Wiggers World. Bird watch or sky watch, it’s what we do!
