As the Northern Hemisphere grows colder, one dreams of  following Flatback Turtle tracks on an Australian beach

Another Halloween approaches, which bodes well for anyone looking for diabolical diversions this weekend. And yet late October still entices with autumnal beauty. How do you balance your need for nature with the craving for the supernatural? 

I’ll be working the Rochester area for birds, while Corey hopes to comb the coast of Queens. 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!
