Hot enough for you? If you live just about anywhere in North America south of Arctic Bay, you’re probably roasting like a brat on a BBQ right about now or in peril of doing so if you dare step outside. Until this heat breaks, you might want to consider armchair birding! So what are your plans this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.

Corey and I are both at a loss for how we’ll be spending the weekend. Assuming there is still heat to beat, I’ll be enjoying birds from the comfort of some body of water.

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!

As promised, here’s a sky-kissed look at the Picasso-themed centerpiece of Chicken Inferno 2011
