Easter weekend, whether you observe the holiday or not, often initiates a lot of travel. Half of Rochester, it seems, will be spending the next week driving to, around, and from Florida and other points south. No matter what direction you are headed, take advantage of the opportunity to see a different suite of birds.
I’m driving south as well this weekend, but only as far as the NYC area for family fun. Corey will buck the trend by traveling north to the Capitol region for similar reasons. 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!
I crossed the Cook Strait after work on the ferry to go on a bird tour of the Marlborough Sounds. Will the White-capped Albatross I saw be my best bird of the weekend? I doubt it, but It’ll be better than anything Corey sees.
Jochen, any Black Woodpecker plans?
Duncan: nah, too common to actually chase. I’ll be at the Baltic Sea Coast and may fully expect amazing waterfowl and white-tailed eagles.
