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!
The Jackson Pollack-inspired effigy of the Chicken Inferno 2012!
Off Cape May, hoping to see a pelagic species or two.
I have parties to attend & commitments I must keep but late on sunday I might be able to back out to valley forge, I want to since last week did nt work out as I had hoped. I wanna see big birds & owls & they r there some where
I’ll be birding locally around the playgrounds of Heidelberg with my son, but possibly mostly focussing on the area around my grill and not too far away from the fridge. We are currently experiencing 35°C in the South of Germany.
Benton Harbor? But … but … WHY!!?
If you’re going on such a long drive, why not head for the stunning Sleeping Bear Dunes? From there it’s only a “cat’s hop” (as we say in German) to the north-central Lower Peninsular and its Kirtland’s Warblers.
If you feel like watching amazing waders and shorebirds on your way there or back, you might want to visit Point Mouillet in Michigan on the shores of Lake Erie south-east of Rockwood.
Hiking at Johnston’s Canyon in Banff National Park on Saturday in search of American Dippers, Black Swifts, and maybe even a Townsend’s Warbler or three.
Sunday will be joining a young up and coming birder as he leads a walk for Nature Calgary in Fish Creek Provincial Park.
Well I just found out where those big birds r hanging out. At the JJ Audubon Society of Pa. Odd bc I’m only minutes away from there. So I suppose il be there this wk & I guess il become a member so I can hook up w/local birders & get in the loop 🙂
