By the fourth weekend of July, you should have a clear idea what kind of summer you’re dealing with. If past serves as prologue where I live, this will be the summer that never was. How is your summer shaping up? How will you be celebrating summer this weekend and is bird watching on the itinerary? Share your plans in the comments below!

I’m headed down to the Bronx to spend time with my brother, who is convalescing from surgery. Consequently, birding is not on the docket. Charlie shan’t be birding either, though he will be visiting the International Bird Rescue Research Center (IBRRC) on Sunday. That’s cool though Corey will probably see enough birds for all of us!

Whatever your plans this weekend, make time to enjoy SkyWatch Friday
