What fresh wonders will the magical last weekend of May deliver? If you live in NYC, one of the world’s great cities, you can rejoice in the spectacle of Manhattanhenge, as sunset this evening aligns with majestic symmetry with the New York City street grid. On the other hand, if you don’t live in New York, you can deal with it, just as you do every weekend…

Of course, I kid, since I am a grateful Bronx expat. I’ll be rocking Rochester this weekend, enjoying that fact that I don’t have to contend with a city street grid. Corey is working hard these days, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he uncovered a Manhattanhenge rarity.

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!
