Jimmy Buffett has it right… a change in latitude can bring a change in attitude. The burden of a long winter and feet upon feet of snow may have dampened my enthusiasm for consistent birding, but a little time on the Space Coast of Florida is doing wonders for my attitude. Breaking out of your usual frame may be the very best way to gain an improved perspective on your life and loves. Think you can do that this weekend? If not, what will you be doing this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.
I’ll be delving for central Florida specialties in my last day at the Annual Space Coast Birding & Wildlife Festival. Corey will be at the Superbowl of Birding in Essex County, MA, of course!
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!
Clear skies over a spartina saltmarsh. Lurking here are Black Rails!
I will be birding in central and western PA, looking for winter raptors and doing the Rusty Blackbird Blitz!
At my current two favorite beaches and the surrounding greenery.
The first Migrators have arrived 🙂
This weekend I’ll be leaving to go on a week-long bird watching vacation in southeastern Arizona. I’ve been studying all the birding-in-Arizona books I’ve bought and hope to add one or two new birds to my list. Also hoping for mild weather and patience from all those traveling with me.
I’ll be with Corey at the Superbowl of Birding.
I’m on a secret mission in New England placing decoy Tufted Ducks on those bodies of water likely to be visited by teams participating in the Superbowl of Birding. This should be fun as a test run with a decoy at Cold Spring Harbor, NY in early January was a complete success.
Jochen, add a King Eider or two (at least one male, to make sure they don’t miss it), to make it the 500th bird of some birders of North Carolina.
I just shipped my Bins to Nikon for a minor repairs, so no birding for me this week end! I hope their customer service will be good!
I am headed to Carara National Park in Costa Rica for a weekend of guiding. Weather will be hot but it should be as birdy as it always is.
