In the United States, the last nights of October mark Devil’s Night, which we celebrate with vicious vandalism and arson. Oh wait, that’s just in Detroit! The rest of celebrate Halloween with costumes, candy, and sometimes vandalism and arson. How will you be spending this ghastly weekend? Will you be able to balance the natural with the supernatural? Share your plans in the comments below.
Corey, Charlie, and I are up to our necks in web and work stuff. Still, I wouldn’t mind the treat (not trick) of something twitchworthy this weekend.
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!
Try to take in a glorious October sunrise, preferably with geese in the foreground, like Corey did
Wait, what are you suggesting about Detroit?
Don’t think I will go birding this week end, but I just wish I could go in UP to chase the first Michigan record of Anna’s Hummingbird!
Maybe try and get to Mauti/Soames Island.
Beautiful photo! Yes, we will be sending our children begging around the neighborhood…armed with lightsabers. 🙂
I just posted a bird picture on Sky Watch and noticed right before mine was yours with the title 10.000 birds (:-). Hope you’ll stop by! (it’s the second post down, but the first post is about the same thing…basically, only without photo).
I’d meant to be on the shores of Boundary Bay, British Columbia, this morning, but the sky was as damp as the bay, so stayed home. Have to make it up with some birding this weekend–maybe Reifel Refuge.
Thinking about geese a lot lately.
Superb Colours, what a fascinating capture. Well done!
Awesome & dramatic capture! I love it!
I am dismayed that so many good birds have shown up in Maine (Yellow-billed Loon! Bronzed Cowbird!) in the month since I’ve moved away. I am going to cover north Mississippi like a carpet this weekend. I’m thinking Jabiru.
