July is ending, which prompts me to inquire whether you are making the most of your months. Summer months mean a lot to me, which must explain why I’m always on the run these days. Have you been watching the sun set in strange skies? You should.

This weekend, I’m heading out to Michigan for a week of sand and sun. Rumor has it that there are no resident Kirtland’s Warblers in Benton Harbor, which makes me wonder how far I’ll need to travel for some jack pines. Any suggestions? Corey will be stuck in the Empire State but is certain to make the best of it. 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!
