Happy Day of the Dead! Don’t panic… this is not the first day of the inexplicably-trendy Zombie Apocalypse. El Dia de los Muertos is a splendid Mexican holiday that should be celebrated by remembering friends and family who have died, eating delicious food, and admiring Mexican warblers.
I haven’t had much luck spotting rarities at the lakeshore, but am keeping my ears open for new sightings of Evening and Pine Grosbeaks, both of which have been popping up in Western New York. Corey will continue to sift through the carnage of Hurricane Sandy for storm-tossed pelagics. 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!
In Mexico, the skies are filled with parrots!
(These particular beauties are Military Macaws observed by Jeff Gordon)
Wow! I have NEVER seen parrots in flight!Great image!
I can’t even photograph birds in my own wooded lot!
I think that “Sandy’s” fierce winds have scared them away! 🙁
Somewhere in Costa Rica although it will probably be raining in most areas…
I’ll be around the west end of Lake Ontario. These north winds are pushing the raptors to get moving. I’m expecting Red-tailed Hawks, Bald eagles, American Kestrels, Turkey Vultures, Merlins, Goshawks, Coopers Hawks, Sharp-shinned Hawks and GOLDEN EAGLES to show up.
I will share the best on my blog: mybirdoftheday.ca
