Much of the United States labors under what is being called a heat dome, and that doesn’t even touch on the flames being set off by our political conventions. As the temperatures rise, I like to think about crisp blue glaciers, like the ones I saw ages ago in Alaska. But then I recall all those wasted opportunities and how I wasn’t even birding back then; the way I feel hardly qualifies as cool.
I’ll be enjoying the heat here in Rochester, where temps never get too high. Corey will be doing the same while camping in the Northern Catskills. 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!
Montrose Point in Chicago — woo-hoo!!
Temps are actually cooler in much of Costa Rica. I should be guiding in the Poas area, always interesting to see how many can be found while moving through three different ecosystems.
