Whether you’re celebrating a new year or just a particularly birdy period of an ongoing one, you will hopefully find this weekend to be a very special one. Keep your eyes and minds open.

I’m happy to be heading down the Delmarva Peninsula to the Chincoteague area, where the birds fly fast and furiously. Corey will be staying around NYC and leading a Sunday bird walk in Kissena Park. 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!
