Many of us in the United States feel like we just had a weekend, when we really only enjoyed a pyrotechnic mid-week holiday. Early summer surely feels like the season that keeps on giving! Fortunately, nature lovers usually know how to take advantage of extra time to ramble and roam.

I saw spectacular lake birds yesterday, so I’ll likely stay in the city this weekend to visit one of Rochester’s multifarious festivals. Corey couldn’t comb the coast of NYC last weekend, so anticipate some sort of psychotic sea watch from him! 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!

Enjoy moody skyscapes like this brooding vista over Lake Bukhtarma in Kazakhstan
(where Jochen independently discovered Booted Warbler supremacy)
