So here we are in the latter half of the first month of the year, and I’ve run out of things to talk about. Not really, but I’m trying to avoid talking about the weather. Are you really into small talk anyway? What’s your sign?
Enough chit chat! Regarding the critical topic of birding and the anticipated location thereof, Corey remains uncharacteristically silent. I suspect that he’s trying to further hone his psychic ability to attract vagrant rarities to the point where they just show up on his balcony. Before you judge him harshly for using his powers for evil, think of the fossil fuels he’ll save! As for me, the only birds I’m likely to see are Ravens from a city we more commonly associate with Orioles… that reference probably only makes sense to Americans, but then again, the same can be said for NFL football.
What will you be doing this weekend and where 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!

It’s my first weekend in Wellington this year, and a long one at that. I may try and bump my year list above 200 birds.
Depends on the weather, but I need to scout for Monday’s free field trip to Barnegat Light, so probably headed down that way once the snow stops.
What incredible colours!! I love the silhouette of the bird!! Just seems to add to the beauty!!
Assuming that the weather’s fine and not too hot, I’ll probably be doing another nature walk with my camera around my local area, trying to photograph some of the birds and other critters.
I was going to play it lazy today (it’s the first day of the weekend here), but I will get my butt out to the beach clean-up at Sulaibikhat (Kuwait) this morning.
Tomorrow a local beach with the dogs (without clean-up) 🙂
In Chennai, at the Pallikaranai Marsh – its the Chennai Bird Race, and the whole city (well ok, more than usual!) will be birding.
I probably wont get out birding this weekend but might go look for rare, migrant ducks somewhere in Costa Rica on Tuesday.
