The month of May has passed and with it the thrills of spring migration. Now is the time in the Northern Hemisphere to get excited about finding birds on their breeding territories. If you live in the more temperate zones of the Southern Hemisphere, I’m frankly not sure what you’re excited about right now! Where will you be this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.

The North American cohort of 10,000 Birds plans to work close to home this weekend. Charlie, on the other hand, will be yodeling his way through the Bavarian Alps as he co-leads a nature tour. Fun, right?

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!
