Keep your eyes to the skies, especially when you’re above the clouds in the Andes!

Many Northern Hemisphere birders see summer as the nadir of the annual bird watching experience. Once all the little chickies have fledged, things get kind of quiet. If you fall into this camp, the time has come to keep your ears and eyes open. If you hadn’t noticed, summer is coming to an end and birds are taking once more to their migratory routes.

I’m trying to decide where in Western New York to chase birds this weekend… got any ideas for me? Corey never needs help determining where to enjoy the best birding in the NYC area. If you see him next to you with bins raised, chances are you’re in the right place! 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!
