Don’t you love this time of year? If you live in the United States, you’re either looking at a long weekend or wishing you had one. All around the world, temperatures are becoming more clement as birds and humans alike begin to settle in for the next season. What will you be doing this glorious weekend? Do your plans include bird watching? Please share your plans in the comments below!

My weekend will be light on birding but highly enjoyable nonetheless as good friends from our of town are coming for a visit. Corey will undoubtedly be combing NYC for every last remaining spring migrant. Charlie may take a moment to enjoy the world outside his cottage but may just as likely stay in to keep mighty Puerto Rico Month rolling.

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