Looking for reason to get out and look at birds this weekend? Why don’t you kick off Wader Conservation November with this weekend’s Wader Conservation World Watch? Last year, more than 70 wader watchers from 19 countries submitted 58 lists tallying 118 species of waders and shorebirds, which represents about 50% of the world’s species. Imagine how successful the World Watch will be if you’re a part of it!

Find out how easy participation is and what prize your participation may win at the Wader Quest Wader Conservation World Watch page.

Since this is a wader weekend, I may take a trip out to Montezuma NWR to see if any are hanging around. Corey will surely stumble on to a few himself around coastal Queens. 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!
