You may have noticed that we’ve had a rough week here at 10,000 Birds. Our webhost moved the site to a new server without alerting us to the steps we should take to make the transition smooth. As a consequence, the site bifurcated, bumbled, and momentarily broke, devouring content in its wake. But the storm seems to have passed. We may have endured a tough week, but another one is on its way. I mention this tale of temporary woe because we are on the cusp of another weekend. Maybe this won’t be a weekend you’ll cherish forever but rather one you’ll look back on with regret. No worries… another weekend will be just five days away.

My expectation this weekend is to get out and enjoy one of the final weekends of summer. My other expectation is that few birds of note can be found right now, but I am open to being surprised! Corey will be returning from his European vacation and will have to content himself with airport birds… curious that Corey happened to be gone during our tech troubles here,  isn’t it?

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!
