Red-tailed Hawk in Flight

Have you ever experienced that delicious moment when your car odometer rolled back to zeros? In the age of digital dashboards, the refresh at 100K miles exists only in memory, but that memory was sweet. Wiping the slate clean imbues the miles to come with fresh possibility and renewed adventure.

And last Sunday, all of our year lists were wiped clean.

Need I say more about the excitement of seeing all your birds, both local and far-flung, anew?

Since I traveled last weekend, I’m hoping to start logging 2017 birds soon, at least as soon as this polar freezeout blows over. Corey will continue setting the pace for a torrid year of birding in the NYC area. 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!
