It’s summertime and the birding is easy! Here in the U.S., school has let out for summer, which means that the next couple of months will be anything but business as usual. How will you celebrate “true summer” where you live? What are you doing this weekend and will you be birding? Share your plans in the comments below.

The kids and I are headed out to Sodus Point on Lake Ontario. I should be just in time for my first Caspian Terns of the year. Corey has no idea where he’ll be birding this weekend, which means that he’ll be hitting the local haunts!

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!
