The last weekend of July signals the midpoint of the current season, at least as far as the conventional calendar is concerned. Birds run on a different timetable than humans, so many of the former are making plans for fall (or spring) while the latter still ponders how to spend those summer (or winter) nights. So if the birding by you has been uninspiring, just wait. A change is on the horizon.

I’ll be in Boston for part of this weekend. Maybe I’ll be able to add something new to my Massachusetts list. Down in the Big Apple, local birders have been mocking Corey by spotting tasty coastal species that he doesn’t have on his Queens list. Wish him luck as he endeavors to rectify these insults.

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!
