The thaw may not have fully arrived where you live but rest assured it is coming. Unless, that is, you live in the Southern Hemisphere, in which case you can celebrate the return of cooler temperatures. Unless, that is, you live in an equatorial region, in which case March remains business as usual! Regardless of where you reside, every weekend offers an opportunity to see something new. Where will you be enjoying nature this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.

I’ll be sticking close to home this weekend… what else is new? Corey will be birding at least once somewhere in Queens, either Flushing Meadows Park or maybe along the coast. Charlie will also be home, hoping for a wintering Blackcap or Chiffchaff to burst into song!

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!
