School is out for summer! That may not be entirely accurate where you live, and even if it is, you may not care. But for so many of us, the end of the academic year opens up a whole host of opportunities and responsibilities. Here in the United States, bird migration may be over but people are now on the move. Where are you flocking to this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below!

I’m taking the kids down to their grandfather’s home for some rural Pennsylvania fun… would an Acadian Flycatcher in full song be too much to ask for?  Corey plans to hit the beach, specifically Cupsogue Beach County Park on Long Island where the summer birding is sweet.

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!

We’re celebrating Poop Week here, so keep your eyes to the skies for dive-bombing gulls like this wicked Western Gull
