The migratory month of May means that birds are on the move and if you live in the United States, you might just have yourself an extra day to mark their passage. So where are you going birding this weekend? Comment below on the excitement you have planned!

Corey and I will be exploring the Atlantic coast for knots, terns, and perhaps Piping Plovers. In addition, I’m sure I’m not the only one who’ll be attending a Memorial Day BBQ, right? Charlie happens to be in North America right now but way on the other coast, out Vancouver way. Can’t wait to see those pics!

Speaking of pictures, here’s a bit of advice for Sky Watch Friday
