So there it is… August is gone. With it go those lazy days of summer, at least here in North America. Most of our students have either returned to school or resume after the coming three-day weekend. Monday marks the unofficial final day of summer. How are you going to spend this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.

The family and I hope to enjoy a spot of camping. I just got my Canon lens recalibrated and ready to rock so there will be photos. Corey will be upstate visiting the family for the weekend and hoping to finally get Ruffed Grouse, Pileated Woodpecker, and Eastern Screech Owl for the year. Charlie, on the other hand, will be back at the manor again, probably reviewing books 🙁

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!
