To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. At least that’s what the Byrds said, quoting liberally from other sources of course. But the sentiment is surprisingly apt considering that we are entering a season of birds. Yes, avian observation almost never takes a holiday, but early migration can be one of the most exciting times to be a birder. This is a time to bird, so get birding!

Corey and I will both be doing what every nature lover should do: scan the wild world for signs of burgeoning spring. 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!
