North American bird lovers may take special satisfaction that a team named for the mighty Osprey is battling for the NFL championship in this weekend’s Super Bowl. But does being a birder mean that you have to automatically root for the bird-themed team? What do you think? And isn’t it time we had a sports team named for the Roseate Spoonbill?

I’ll be watching Seahawks and probably not much else this weekend. Corey, on the other hand, is sure to find a real bird worth looking at amidst the cold and snow. 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!
