October may be the month of terror–particularly for those of us horrified by the pervasive spread of pumpkin spice flavoring–but the first weekend of the month can be idyllic. When people say they love fall, they usually envision early October. A slightly smaller subset of those autumnal advocates also envision all the migrants still streaming across the skies.

Speaking of migrants, Corey will be holding court at Fort Tilden on Saturday for his annual Big Sit. I’ll be heading (but not technically migrating) to NYC for a family visit that will likely be woefully bereft of bird spotting. 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!
