The fifth and final week of a long month has arrived. September is knocking on our doors, people! How are you going to answer? What will you be doing this weekend? Will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below!

I’m gearing up for another cool, wet weekend at the Finger Lakes. Can you sense my excitement over the prospect of 70-degree water? Corey will most likely spend a day at Jamaica Bay, and maybe a bit of time in Forest park hoping for migrant warblers. Charlie will be walking the manor grounds in search of proper British birds and butterflies.

Whatever your plans this weekend, make time to enjoy SkyWatch Friday. Also be sure to come back Monday to share your best bird of the weekend!

Believe it or not, Corey spotted shorebirds in this muddy Michigan field. I don’t see anything. Nice sky, though.
