According to NORAD, Santa is already on the move. Many of you may be as well. In the mad rush to count birds and collect presents, try not to forget what really matters this holiday season… more birds and presents!

I’m heading down to rural Pennsylvania to enjoy my Xmas Eve tradition of bagels and lox, the legacy of an NYC upbringing. Corey is already in southern California tracking east to Utah looking for lifers and good holiday cheer. How about you? Where will you be this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.

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!
